CIMIC's Sedgman secures $100m in coal mining contracts

Monica Gameng   |   November 6, 2018

CIMIC Group company Sedgman has recently been awarded contracts for works at two coal mining operations, with the contracts having a combined value of $100 million.

The first contract is for the operation and maintenance of the Mount Pleasant thermal coal mine in Muswellbrook, New South Wales. The three-year contract was awarded by Mach Energy and it is valued at approximately $75 million.

“At Mount Pleasant we are building on CIMIC Group’s long established partnership with Mach Energy and drawing on our relationship with Thiess, also a member of CIMIC Group, to deliver a seamless service that will maximise the value from the site,” Sedgman Managing Director Grant Fraser said.

Sedgman has also acquired a $25 million contract from QCoal to operate and maintain the Byerwen mine, which is located approximately 20 kilometres west of Glenden in Queensland’s Bowen Basin.

“Sedgman’s strong working relationship with QCoal has developed over many years. We have been closely involved throughout the Byerwen project from the engineering, procurement and construction of the stockpile, train load-out and CHPP. We are pleased to be completing the cycle by operating the plant,” Mr Fraser added.

Operations at the Mount Pleasant mine is set to commence by the end of 2018. On the other hand, the Byerwen CHPP is already being commissioned.
