Key part­ner­ship at Iron­bark No.1

The Australian Mining Review - - FITZROY AUSTRALIA RESOURCES -

NE­PEAN has an­nounced its part­ner­ship with Fitzroy Aus­tralia Re­sources (Fitzroy) for the de­sign and de­liv­ery of key equip­ment and in­fra­struc­ture for the Iron­bark No. 1 coal mine.

NE­PEAN and Fitzroy will ex­e­cute the pro­ject as an in­te­grated pro­ject team in two phases; firstly, the ac­cel­er­ated de­sign and devel­op­ment, and se­condly, the ac­qui­si­tion, in­stal­la­tion and com­mis­sion­ing.

The pro­ject will lever­age NE­PEAN’s lead­ing stream spe­cial­ist busi­nesses; NE­PEAN Con­vey­ors, NE­PEAN Power and NE­PEAN Long­wall.

The scope in­cludes con­vey­ors (sur­face and un­der­ground), elec­tri­cal sys­tems, elec­tri­cal retic­u­la­tion, the mine ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem and the long­wall sys­tem.

“We are de­lighted to be form­ing a part­ner­ship with Fitzroy,” NE­PEAN chief ex­ec­u­tive Miles Fuller said.

“This part­ner­ship will achieve a su­pe­rior out­come for Fitzroy, by sig­nif­i­cantly re­duc­ing pro­ject cost, ac­cel­er­at­ing de­liv­ery time, and en­sur­ing su­pe­rior equip­ment life­cy­cle per­for­mance.

“This model will re­de­fine how suc­cess­ful projects can and should be de­liv­ered.”

NE­PEAN is renowned for its in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions, in­house de­sign ca­pa­bil­i­ties, world-class man­u­fac­tur­ing op­er­a­tions, on time pro­ject de­liv­ery, spe­cial­ist com­mis­sion­ing and op­ti­mi­sa­tion ser­vices, and life cy­cle sup­port ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

Fitzroy Aus­tralia Re­sources chief ex­ec­u­tive Grant Pol­warth high­lighted the cul­tural align­ment between Fitzroy and NE­PEAN, and said the mu­tual fo­cus on value-adding de­ci­sion mak­ing and ex­e­cu­tion, were key fac­tors in es­tab­lish­ing the part­ner­ship.

“We are ex­cited about work­ing with NE­PEAN in a true part­ner­ship sense to de­liver a re­sult which has the po­ten­tial to be com­pany build­ing for both groups as well as change the in­dus­try land­scape and ex­pec­ta­tions on ma­jor pro­ject de­liv­ery,” Mr Pol­warth said.

Since found­ing in 1974, NE­PEAN has grown to be­come a global or­gan­i­sa­tion with 25 busi­nesses across five con­ti­nents.
