Civmec has received three notices of award from long-term Tier 1 customers for maintenance and capital works projects collectively worth approximately A$130 million. This brings the company’s total order book to about A$1.05 billion as of 30 September 2021.
Two of the notices are for BHP and Roy Hill projects in Western Australia’s Pilbara region, while the other is a term contract for a Rio Tinto aluminium smelter near Gladstone in Queensland. The BHP and Roy Hill projects are within Civmec’s newly formed Maintenance and Capital Works, Resources and Energy area.
The BHP contract is part of the miner’s Port DeBottlenecking Project Stage 1, which includes a new stockyard planned for the South Yard at Nelson Point in Port Hedland. The scope of work includes dewatering, piling, ground improvement, associated earthworks, concrete foundations, new roads, high voltage poles, and underground power works. Mobilisation will commence in the second quarter of Civmec’s current financial year ending 30 June 2022, with completion in the first quarter of the next financial year.
The Roy Hill contract is for an extension to the existing WHIMS plant located at a mine site north of Newman. The scope of work includes greenfield installation and pre-commissioning of pre-assembled modules, piping, electrical and tie in works. Mobilisation will commence immediately, and completion is scheduled for the third quarter of the current financial year.
The multi-year Rio Tinto Boyne Island Smelters contract is to supply refractory trades and other associated disciplines for maintenance, rebuild, and reduction cell reconstruction works on carbon bake furnaces. The contract term is for three years with two one-year extension options.
