Ma­jor wins for Decmil

The Australian Mining Review - - NEWS: THE CONTRACTORS - ELIZ­A­BETH FABRI WEST­ERN AUS­TRALIA

BHP has awarded Decmil Aus­tralia a $75 mil­lion con­tract to to un­der­take ex­pan­sion works at its Mulla Mulla ac­com­mo­da­tion vil­lage in the WA Pil­bara.

The con­tract is the first phase of a $105 mil­lion vil­lage ex­pan­sion to sup­port cur­rent op­er­a­tions at Min­ing Area C and the pro­posed $US3.2 bil­lion South Flank iron ore pro­ject.

Decmil managing director and chief executive Scott Crid­dle said the con­tract fol­lowed a $13m civil and ini­tial works con­tract awarded in Au­gust.

“The con­tract award is fol­low­ing the suc­cess­ful de­liv­ery of other pro­ject works at ma­jor WA iron ore sites,” Mr Crid­dle said.

“Decmil has achieved great suc­cess in de­liv­er­ing com­plex projects across the re­gion, re­in­forc­ing our ex­per­tise and 40 years of ex­pe­ri­ence as a sec­tor con­trac­tor.

“We look for­ward to fur­ther so­lid­i­fy­ing our growth path and long-stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with BHP.”

Decmil’s pre­vi­ous BHP con­tracts in­cluded build­ing a lo­gis­tics hub at Port Hed­land, the con­struc­tion of a tail­ings stor­age fa­cil­ity at Olympic Dam in South Aus­tralia, con­crete works and the con­struc­tion of cool­ing tow­ers at Raven­sthorpe nickel op­er­a­tions, and var­i­ous fa­cil­i­ties at BHP’s New­man Hub and Jim­ble­bar projects in WA.

Decmil has also re­cently com­pleted works for other iron ore ma­jors, such as Fortes­cue Met­als Group, Roy Hill, and Rio Tinto.

The Mulla Mulla con­tract was one of many Decmil has se­cured with BHP.
