An infrastructure builder has won a new tender for part of a foreign-backed $21 billion coal development in Central Queensland’s Galilee Basin.

Martinus Rail recently secured the civil construction contract for Adani Australia’s Carmichael Coal and Rail Project, about 160km northwest of Clermont.

600 FIFO jobs

The successful bidder will be required to deliver rail formation works spanning 86km, more than 200 culverts, 35 rail crossings, nine waterway bridges and a road over rail bridge. QMEB can reveal the deal will create more than 600 jobs and total more than $220 million. The contract is separate to the $100M track works package Martinus previously won in October 2019.

Recruitment has started for the following fly-in fly-out (FIFO) positions:

  • permit officer
  • traffic manager
  • quality coordinator
  • contract administrator
  • senior project engineer
  • project engineer
  • site engineer
  • health, safety and environment manager
  • construction manager.

Successful applicants will initially be based in Brisbane for the first couple of months before working on a FIFO basis for the next eight months on a rostered three weeks on and one week off. Employees must be solution-focused, exceed expectations and finish the job “no matter what”.

“Martinus will base their workforce out of Rockhampton and Townsville, delivering a big win to regional Queenslanders and these local economies in particular,” Adani Mining CEO Lucas Dow said in a public statement. “At a time when our country is facing some of its toughest challenges, we’re determined to deliver on our commitments of jobs and opportunities.”

No experience needed

Adani is separately hiring electrical and mechanical apprentices to join its Abbot Point Terminal at Bowen in the New Year. Successful applicants will complete a best practice learning program with a mix of both on- and off-site training opportunities to develop technical skills.

“It was amazing to get to work with skilled and experienced tradespeople who take such pride in what they do,” apprenticeship graduate Lachlan Mee said in a public statement. “My apprenticeship with Abbot Point Operations was a great opportunity. If you are motivated and a positive person, I would strongly encourage you to apply.”

Apprenticeship applications will be open for the entire month of May 2020.
