An engineering company has won a second tender for part of a metal project worth more than $5 billion.
Monadelphous Group recently secured another construction contract at BHP’s South Flank Iron Ore Project, 130km northwest of Newman in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
The deal involves structural, mechanical, piping and electrical and instrumentation works related to the project’s inflow infrastructure. QMEB can reveal the latest contract is worth $104 million.
Monadelphous previously won a tender worth $108 million in February that involved structural, mechanical, piping and electrical and instrumentation works associated with the project’s outflow infrastructure. Work on that contract is already underway and expected to end in May 2021.
The company confirmed work on the latest inflow infrastructure contract is expected to start shortly and complete in March 2021.
“We are pleased to secure further work on this significant project and look forward to continuing our long track record of successfully working with BHP,” Monadelphous managing director Rob Velletri said in a statement to the Australian stock market.
The second contract is hoped to increase efficiency across the two work packages.
The contractor is hiring senior recruitment specialists at the moment to field job applications for the South Flank project among others. Positions are expected to be advertised on Monadelphous’ careers portal under the keyword, flank.
