Whittens continues winning streak
PERTH-based contractor Whittens has locked down its sixth major contract for 2017 on the Pilgangoora lithium-tantalum project in WA.
The contract is valued at an estimated $10m, and includes installation of 5800 cubic metres of concrete from September 2017 through to January 2018.
Whittens’ scope of work involves concrete construction of primary and secondary crushing, tertiary crushing (wet screening), wet processing, spodumene concentration dressing, and processing plant services.
“We are very pleased to be part of such a significant project; this contract award validates the commitment of our people and further cements our position in Western Australia as the leading self-perform construction and services partner to the mining industry,” Whittens chief executive Louise Whitten said.
Whittens civil construction contracts have been flowing in this year.
