Before 2018 ended, another CIMIC Group company has been awarded a works contract valued at approximately $180 million. UGL Limited has secured a multi-year contract for works across BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance’s (BMA) Bowen Basin, Queensland coal operations.

UGL will be delivering maintenance and shutdown support services to BMA’s coal operations, with the scope of works to include:

  • Coal handling preparation plant (CHPP) maintenance and scheduled plant outage maintenance services

  • Infrastructure maintenance services, including field equipment, remote fuel farms, sewerage and water treatment plants

“We are proud of our long-standing partnership with BMA. This contract reflects our solid reputation for supporting the BMA operations teams through the safe delivery and performance of maintenance and shutdown services,” UGL Managing Director Jason Spears said.

CIMIC Group companies CPB Contractors and Sedgman have been jointly awarded a $184 million contract in December 2018 as well. The contract is for works at Pembroke Resources’ Olive Downs Coking Coal Project, also in the Queensland’s Bowen Basin.
