UGL has secured maintenance and construction contracts with BHP, Rio Tinto and Roy Hill. The contracts are worth more than $200 million.
UGL, a CIMIC Group company, will perform mechanical, civil, structural, piping, electrical, instrumentation and rail services for shutdowns and sustaining capital projects across BHP's iron ore mine site and port operations and rail facilities in the Pilbara, Western Australia.
The company will perform similar operations for Rio Tinto at the Mesa J PP2 Rescreening Plant in Western Australia. The project, which will employ approximately 160 people, will commence immediately and continue until September 2021.
Rio Tinto also extended its scheduled shutdown services contract with UGL for its alumina refinery.
In addition, UGL will install a run of mine crusher and materials handling circuit for Roy Hill. This work will require around 100 people to be employed.
These contracts will run over the course of several years.
CIMIC Group chief executive Juan Santamaria said these contracts were a demonstration of UGL’s 30 years of experience in building partnerships with mining companies.
UGL managing director Jason Spears added: “These new contracts and contract extensions highlight UGL’s capabilities in the mining sector and expand on our strong relationships with our clients.
“We look forward to carrying out these contracts in a safe and reliable manner.”
