An integrated engineering and construction group has won a contract at a Western Australian metal project worth more than $2 billion.
Civmec Construction and Engineering recently secured the third module fabrication and assembly package at BHP’s South Flank Iron Ore Project, 100km northwest of Newman in the Pilbara region. QMEB can reveal the contract is worth $48 million.
The deal involves supplying and assembling 23 fully equipped smart modules and any required mechanical and electrical equipment. This includes conveyor shuttle modules, pump skids, feeder modules, a sample station and train loadout.
Work is already underway to fabricate and assemble all components at Civmec’s waterfront facility based at the Australian Marine Complex in Henderson, WA. The contract is expected to create about 80 jobs in Perth and end in mid-2020.
“The award of this scope of work complements the packages already in production for ThyssenKrupp, in the supply, manufacture, trial assembly, surface treatment and pre-assembly of stackers, bogies and equalisers for the rail mounted machines for the South Flank project,” Civmec CEO Patrick Tallon said in a public statement.
