Sophia Rostron   |   August 25, 2016

Engineering Group RCR Tomlinson has been awarded four new contracts with a combined value of $170 million, continuing to diversify into new sections and regions. 

RCR has credited the contract wins to the growth of long-term client relationships, and RCR's approach of "delivering innovating solutions that provide improved cost and reliability to our customer operations." 

Managing Director & CEO, Dr Paul Dalgleish said, “We are pleased to see the continued award of contracts across the businesses which supports our growth targets for this financial year. These new contracts further boost our order book for FY17 and beyond.”

The new contracts include :

  • BHP Billiton: Contracts to provide rail signaling upgrade works at the Nelson Point train unloading station, supply of a cooling system for the Mooka ore car repair workshop in Port Hedland and a 5 year maintenance agreement for apron feeders across BHP’s iron ore operations across Western Australia.
  • Major NSW utility provider: A five year contract to provide maintenance and shutdown services, with a contract extension option for a further two years. 
  • Sydney Water: A contract to construct new inlet works, biological process tanks and associated infrastructure at the Picton Reclyced Water Treatment Plant. 
  • Visionstream Australia: A five year contract, valued at $50 million, to supply HVAC maintenance services to more than 40,000 facilities and network assets across Australia. 

The contract wins follow RCR's recent $120 million agreement to build processing infrastructure at Rio Tinto's Silvergrass East mine as part of its Pilbara iron ore operations in Western Australia.
