Engineer and contractor firm MACA has added new mining, civil and infrastructure contracts to its order book – to the tune of A$90 million – across Australia.
First, the company was notified of an award for a maintained and operated fleet arrangement with Allkem at its Mt Cattlin lithium project in Ravensthorpe, Western Australia. The project is expected to generate approximately $12 million in revenue over the coming six months, and it also has the potential to lead to further work at Mt Cattlin.
“The project will continue MACA’s mining services exposure to the lithium sector when the Pilbara Minerals Pilgangoora contract reaches the end of its term towards the end of the second half of 2022,” MACA officials said. “This project will utilise existing fleet from within the MACA business.”
On the civil and infrastructure front, the firm received a deal for a bulk earthworks ponds project for Lynas Rare Earths. The project includes the construction of bulk earthworks and liner installation for six new ponds at the Lynas Rare Earth’s processing facility in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.
The A$34 million project is expected to be delivered between Q123 and Q323 (fiscal).
Two remaining awards in the package include projects in Victoria, one for road maintenance for the Yarra Ranges Council and another for minor guardrail and civil projects for the Department of Transport (Victoria) and Parks Victoria.
