Leighton Asia has been awarded an Aus$1.1 billion contract for the expansion of mining services at the MSJ coal mine in Indonesia for PT Mahakam Sumber Jaya (PT MSJ).
The 6 year contract extension will see PT Leighton Contractors Indonesia, a division of Leighton Asia, expand its current overburden removal and coal mining operations to more than 8 million tonnes of coal/annum.
The mine, which is part of the Harum Energy Group’s coal operations, is in the north of Samarinda, East Kalimantan.
Leighton Asia’s managing director Hamish Tyrwhitt says, “The contract extension is testament to Leighton’s strong performance on the project since 2004.”
“The Tanito/Harum Energy Group is one of Indonesia’s largest and most successful coal mining companies and the award of this contract further solidifies our close working relationship.
“We've successfully demonstrated our ability to add value to our client’s project over many years, both through the quality of our people and the safety and reliability of our operations.
“Backed by a strong international presence and vast experiences in the mining sector, our mining professionals have thrived on providing world class solutions to our clients and reaffirm our competitive position in Indonesia.
“Our operation in Indonesia has been an outstanding performer for the past few years, and we expect to continue to perform strongly in both mining and infrastructure. This contract takes Leighton Asia’s work in hand to record levels of more than Aus$7 billion.”
Leighton Asia has been operating at the MSJ mine since May 2004, when it signed an initial three year contract. PT MSJ has a crusher, blending and load out facility on the Mahakam River.
