Adani Group releases EOIs for works on the Carmichael Project

Monica Gameng   |   December 5, 2018

Following the announcement that the Carmichael coal project has been fully funded, Adani Group has released to market Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for various jobs on the project, ramping up the company’s recruitment efforts.

Adani has listed on its website the jobs open for submission of EOIs and it includes opening for civil engineering, heavy earthmoving equipment operators, mine engineering and project administration. 

Through a statement released in November 2018, Adani Mining CEO Lucas Dow said that the Carmichael Project is expected to create thousands of jobs for regional Queensland.

“In the initial ramp up and construction phase there will be more than 1,500 direct jobs on the mine and rail project and thousands of indirect jobs especially in places like Rockhampton, Townsville, Mackay and the Isaac region.

“Further jobs will be created as the mine’s capacity grows to 27.5Mtpa,” Mr Dow said.

Adani Group announced last month that the company will be fully funding the development of the Carmichael Project - located in central Queensland’s Galilee Basin, near Mackay.

The company has also announced that it has scaled down the size of the project, with an initial 10Mtpa capacity before it increases to 27.5Mtpa within a 10-year period.

With a smaller project scope, the Carmichael Project is now expected to cost approximately $2 billion, which is a huge drop from its initial $16.5 billion price tag.
