A diversified global engineering group has won a primary tender for a $2 billion coal operation in Central Queensland’s Isaac region.

DRA Global recently secured the Coal Preparation Plant (CPP) contract for Bravus Mining and Resources’ Carmichael Coal Project in Belyando, 435km southwest of Mackay.

The successful bidder, which previously won the Coal Handling Plant (CHP) tender, will now engineer, design and construct both the CHP and CPP.

This includes supplying and constructing infrastructure for coal processing, coal stockpiling and loading the finished product onto trains. It also requires supplying and constructing coal sizing and conveying equipment. QMEB can reveal the latest deal is worth $140 million.

More than 250 workers will be required to deliver both of the plants and DRA has already begun recruiting for the following permanent positions:
