Key partnership at Ironbark No.1
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.
