A multi-disciplinary engineering group has won multiple tenders at a $50 million metal project in the Top End.

Primero Group recently won the build-own-operate and operations and maintenance contracts for Core Lithium’s Finniss Project, 90km south of Darwin.

Expanded role

The proponent previously confirmed Primero as the preferred engineering, procurement and construction contractor earlier in 2019. The latest tender wins will extend the contractor’s role to include building the crushing and screening circuit, and also operating and maintaining the processing facility.

QMEB can reveal the latest contracts are worth a total of $100 million, and there is potential to extend the initial four year term.
