People servicing the mining industry could find millions of dollars of business opportunities this year, an industry event organiser has said.

Gladstone Engineering Alliance (GEA) predicts there will be millions of dollars of tender and procurement opportunities in 2019, revealing explosives supplier Orica Yarwun will present and give local contractors and suppliers the opportunity to procure work with them at the Yaralla Sports Club on February 21 as part of the GEA February Industry Update 2019.

“Orica Yarwun has maintenance and shut down planning scheduled for the next 10 years and will be presenting opportunities, including information about their capital budget, which is expected to provide another income stream for Gladstone locals,” GEA acting chief executive officer Julie Gelder said in a public statement.

Proponents of the $400 million Rodds Bay Solar Farm and Renew Estate will also join the program of events, with Renew Estate director Simon Currie (pictured) revealing the company’s projected procurement program for 2019/20, including at its $300 million Rodds Bay Solar Farm Project which is 50km south of Gladstone.

“Renew Estate are currently building their database of local talent and service providers that will be passed onto their principal engineering, procurement and construction contractor once appointed,” Gelder said.
