Australia : Civmec Secures Award of Major Iron Ore Project for Fortescue Metals Group
Publish Date : 16-Aug-2019
Civmec will deliver the Primary Crushing and Ore Processing Facility for Fortescue Metals Groups (Fortescue) new Eliwana Mine and Rail project, located approximately 90km north-west of Tom Price in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
Civmecs scope is for the full vertical delivery of the facilitys Iron Ore Loading, Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Crushing, Ore Screening and Associated Conveyor Systems, up to no load commissioning. Shop detailing, fabrication, delivery and site installation of the civil, structural, mechanical, piping and electrical works is included in this significant package of work.
Civmecs Chief Executive Officer, Mr Patrick Tallon, said: We are pleased to extend our relationship with Fortescue in the delivery of this exciting new contract. We have worked extensively with Fortescue for some time to secure this award, with the package of work utilising many of our core disciplines in a single, vertical solution offering.
The package for Eliwana will provide employment for an estimated 300 local people, both at Civmecs heavy engineering facilities where the fabrication will be undertaken, and in the Pilbara for onsite works. Work will commence over the coming months, with completion anticipated by late-2020.
Fortescues strong commitment to supporting West Australian industry, by engaging our fabrication capability as part of the turnkey solution, is commendable. This is a great start to FY2020 and we look forward to the year ahead, said Mr Tallon.
Civmec also recently secured additional contracts within its maintenance division and subsea fabrication work for the Oil & Gas sector, and these combined with the award of the Eliwana package from Fortescue, brings the value of new work since the beginning of the financial year to approximately AUD $120 million.
