Parsons Brinckerhof has appointed Turner & Townsend to provide support services to the Project Management Consultant (PMC) team on the Carmichael coal mine, port, and rail project in the Galilee Basin.
The massive Adani Mining project has a forecast capital spend of up to AUD$16.5bn.
Turner & Townsend will provide a suite of programme support services to the PMC for the delivery of the initial phase of works.
The project will build Australia’s largest thermal coal mine, and will be linked by a new 388km standard gauge rail line to a new export terminal at Abbot Point Port, near Bowen in Central Queensland.
Over its 60-year lifespan, this major ‘pit to port’ infrastructure project will not only support Adani’s operations, but the rail line and port facilities have the potential to assist the development of other proposed mines in the Galilee Basin.
Anthony Wood, Director at Turner & Townsend said he was looking forward to starting on the project.
“We have collaborated with Parsons Brinckerhoff on the Roy Hill Iron One project in Western Australia and other major programmes around the world. The team at Turner & Townsend is delighted to be working with them once again.
