A contract to complete cryogenic tanks at the Ichthys LNG project in Darwin has been won by Monadelphous Group, which is the same job that Laing O’Rourke walked away from in March.
Japan’s Kawasaki Heavy Industries awarded the Burswood-based company a subcontract for structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation work on the cryogenic tanks at Ichthys onshore LNG facilities.
The engineering contractor Laing O’Rourke was previously carrying out the work which was in its final stages until Laing walked off the job in March, claiming Kawasaki hadn’t paid in months.
Last month, Monadelphous secured offshore maintenance services work at Ichthys for an undisclosed sum. Managing director Rob Velletri said “We are particularly pleased to have secured further works at Ichthys, which underlines our strong performance to date on this project”.
Following this, Monadelphous announced it had secured a new contract for the supply of steel, fabricated spooling and pre-assembled modular pipe racks as part of a plant expansion project in the US for Texas-headquartered Jacobs.
Monadelphous also secured four new contracts in the water industry, one in Australia and three in New Zealand. The Australian contract was for the Townsville City Council for upgrades to the Cleveland Bay purification plant for provision of civil, structural, mechanical and electrical work.
