Bechtel’s Impact Report

Iron Ore

The Backbone of Industry

Almost all the world’s iron ore output is used to produce steel, the foundation of transportation infrastructure, housing, buildings, industry, heavy machinery, and automobiles.

We have been assisting our customers in the delivery of iron ore plants since 1954, first in Venezuela, then in Canada, and, most recently, in Western Australia, where we have an office dedicated to supporting the world’s most efficient producers of seaborne iron ore.

Regardless of where the projects are located, Bechtel and its customers strive to protect and respect local communities and the environment.
