“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.
