A mining, energy and civil infrastructure company has won a tender for part of a $3.5 billion metal project in Western Australia’s Midwest region.

NRW Holdings recently secured the earthworks contract for Rio Tinto’s Koodaideri Iron Ore Mine, 301km south of Port Hedland.

The deal involves building 73km of new rail embankment, mine access road and associated road works along the Koodaideri rail alignment for the mine’s Rail Formation South.

QMEB can reveal the contract is worth more than $137 million.

Construction is expected to begin in August 2019 and end in January 2021. More than 300 site-based jobs will be created for throughout the lifespan of the project.

No jobs are specifically advertised for the Koodaideri project but they will be advertised on NRW’s careers page. NRW is currently hiring:

  • excavator operator – civil
  • dozer operators – civil
  • all round operators – civil
  • civil dump truck operators
  • boilermakers
  • heavy duty fitters.

“NRW has a long history of civil construction expertise in the Pilbara and has been involved in the successful delivery of numerous Greenfield and Brownfield projects for Rio Tinto since 2002,” NRW chief executive Jules Pemberton said in a public statement. “This contract also follows the recent award of the Koodaideri plant site earthworks contract where construction has already commenced.”
