Fresh from announcing its appointment as a major construction player at Western Australia’s largest lithium hydroxide plant courtesy of Albermarle Lithium, the ASX-listed heavy engineering group Civmec (ASX:CVL) has been revealed as a partner at the BHP South Flank Mine.
Civmec has been awarded a contract for works at South Flank, which is approximately 100km north-west of Newman in the Pilbara region of WA and anticipated to be one of the world’s largest iron ore operations once operational.
The company has said work will commence immediately, with completion anticipated by mid-2020.
The package is believed to create approximately 80 jobs with work being undertaken at its facility within the Australian Marine Complex in Henderson, Western Australia.
Commenting on the contract win, Civmec CEO Patrick Tallon said:
We are extremely pleased to be given this opportunity to further support BHP in the delivery of what will ultimately become its flagship mine.
“The award of this scope of work complements the packages already in production for ThyssenKrupp, in the supply, manufacture, trial assembly, surface treatment and pre-assembly of stackers, bogies and equalisers for the rail mounted machines for the South Flank project.”
Civmec will be supplying and assembling 23 fully equipped ‘smart modules’ at South Flank.
The contract includes conveyor shuttle modules, sample station, pump skids, train loadout and feeder modules.
