Civmec, an Australian-Singaporean construction service provider, has won the $330 million contract to support development for the Western Range iron ore project in Western Australia. The project, based in the Pilbara region, is worth over $2 billion and is being built by Rio Tinto and Baowu Steel Group.
“We are very pleased to be awarded the Western Range project, which further enhances our long-standing relationship with Rio Tinto.” Civmec CEO Patrick Tallon said. The construction services provider will undertake a range of responsibilities for the project, including utilising their manufacturing facilities and engineering.
With an annual iron ore production capacity of 25 million tons, the project is expected to support around 1,600 jobs. It involves the construction of a new run of mine (RoM) pad as well as an overland conveying circuit and modifications to the Coarse Ore Stockpile (COS), primary crushing facility and downstream conveying system.
The Western Range project is set to be completed in 2025.
