This is the largest contract that has been announced and details are light at the moment, however, given the size of this contract and the massive scope of the Carmichael coal mine it is clear that this is a huge win for Downer.

The $16 billion mega mine was given approval last night by Adani Chairman Gautam Adani, who stated,

“I am proud to announce the project has final investment decision approval which marks the official start of one of the largest single Infrastructure — and job creating — developments in Australia’s recent history,”

“This is a historic day for Adani, a historic day for regional Queensland, and a historic day for Indian investment in Australia.”

“This is the largest single investment by an Indian corporation in Australia, and I believe others will follow with investments and trade deals.”

“We have been challenged by activists in the courts, in inner city streets, and even outside banks that have not even been approached to finance the project.”

“We are still facing activists. But we are committed to this project.”

“We are committed to regional Queensland and we are committed to addressing energy poverty in India.”

This is also a timely reminder that Adani has said it will be evaluating the digital presence of a company before awarding any tenders. To have a chat about updating your website, click here.
