Monica Gameng   |   August 12, 2020

UGL Limited – a member of CIMIC Group – grows its order book for 2020 with a number of construction and maintenance contract awards in the mining industry, with the contracts having a combined value of more than $200 million.

“These contracts are demonstration of UGL’s 30 years of experience in building partnerships with leading mining companies and delivering solid performance of maintenance and shutdown services,” CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said.

The multi-year contracts will get UGL to undertake mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and access services for maintenance as well as shutdowns and sustaining capital projects across several mining sites.

The contracts secured by UGL include:

  • Civil, structural, mechanical, piping, electrical, communications and instrumentation work for Rio Tinto at the Mesa J PP2 Rescreening Plant in Western Australia. The project, which will employ approximately 160 people, will commence immediately and continue until September 2021
  • A contract extension for scheduled major shutdown service at Rio Tinto’s Alumina Refinery
  • Installation of a run of mine crusher and materials handling circuit for Roy Hill. Comprising supply, structural, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation works, the project will employ approximately 100 people
  • Appointment to BHP’s engineering services panel to provide civil, structural, mechanical, piping, electrical, instrumentation and rail services for shutdowns and sustaining capital projects across BHP’s Western Australian iron ore mine site and port operations, and rail facilities in the Pilbara

“These new contracts and contract extensions highlight UGL’s capabilities in the mining sector and expand on our strong relationship with our clients. We look forward to carrying out these contracts in a safe and reliable manner,” UGL Managing Director Jason Spears said.
