CIMIC Group’s mineral processing company, Sedgman, has been awarded a contract at the Byerwen Coal Mine in Central Queensland, continuing CIMIC Group’s long-standing relationship with QCoal Group.
The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract will deliver an expansion on the first phase of the project, which Sedgman was awarded in February 2018, and includes the duplication of the existing coal handling and processing plant.
The contract will generate revenue of AU$155 million for CIMIC Group.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright said that this latest contract demonstrates Sedgman’s ability to deliver positive and consistent outcomes for QCoal, and is a “testament to the Sedgman team’s focus on delivering enduring value for our clients.”
Early work has commenced and the project will conclude in early 2020.
The Byerwen mine site is located 20 kilometres west of Glenden in Queensland’s Bowen Basin.
