A construction company has won another tender at part of a $3.6 billion iron ore development in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
Pindan recently secured the landside airport package at Fortescue Metals Group’s Iron Bridge Magnetite Project, 145km south of Port Hedland.
The successful bidder is tasked with designing and constructing a new landside airport and communications tower and at the existing mine site.
This includes managing civil, design, road construction and fitting-out work. It also requires supplying all resources, support facilities, labour and materials for the job. QMEB can reveal work will start in October and finish by Christmas.
“[We] are already on the ground at Iron Bridge, having been awarded a $3.4 million contract in June this year to design, supply and install a number of office buildings, as well as deliver associated infrastructure, at Fortescue’s Herb Elliot Port facility in Port Hedland,” Pindan executive director Tony GerberGerber said in a public statement.
