Civmec is pleased to announce that it has received three notices of award from several repeat customers for maintenance and capital works projects collectively worth approximately A$130 million, bringing its total order book to about A$1.05 billion as at 30 September 2021.

Two of the notices are for projects in Western Australia’s Pilbara region, while the other is a term contract for an aluminium smelter near Gladstone in Queensland. The awards comprise:

Maintenance and Capital Works, Resources and Energy

BHP PDP1 – Civil & Earthworks: This contract is part of BHP’s Port DeBottlenecking Project Stage 1, which includes a new stockyard planned for the South Yard at Nelson Point, located in Port Hedland, Western Australia. The scope of work includes dewatering, piling, ground improvement, associated earthworks, concrete foundations, new roads, HV (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.

Roy Hill – WHIMS Expansion - Greenfield Construction Package: This contract is for an extension to the existing WHIMS plant located at Roy Hill’s mine site north of Newman, in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. 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 financial year ending 30 June 2022.

Maintenance and Capital Works, Refineries and Smelters

Rio Tinto - Boyne Island Smelters (BSL): This 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. It complements current maintenance activities in the Gladstone region, streamlining and giving consistency of work activities to the local workforce. It also reinforces Civmec’s long-term commitment to Gladstone region, where it has a permanent presence.

Civmec’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Patrick Tallon commented, “We are delighted to secure these project wins with three of our long-term Tier 1 customers. The projects combine multi-year maintenance works along with two projects within our newly formed Maintenance and Capital Works – Resources and Energy area.

With the BHP PDP1 project located in the Port Hedland region, it provides an ideal opportunity for Civmec’s newly opened regional branch to support the project, validating Civmec’s recently announced plans to invest in a purpose-built facility in Port Hedland.

The multi-year Rio Tinto BSL project win in our Maintenance and Capital Works, Refineries and Smelters area, is a credit to our team who have been focussed on increasing longer term recurring revenue style contracts to complement our Major Project and Manufacturing activities.”
