Engineering company Civmec has secured new contracts with a combined value of about A$175m ($126m) including new projects with BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) and the Iron Bridge magnetite project.

Civmec also secured another contract to support Woodside’s onshore and offshore oil and gas facilities in Australia.

The combined value of the three contracts is approximately A$175m ($126m).

BMA has engaged Civmec to fabricate, modularise and commission the 1800-tonne shiploader for Hay Point Coal Terminal, which is still dependent on receiving final board approval from BHP and Mitsubishi.

Civmec said that the large material handling equipment will be fabricated at its Henderson manufacturing facility in Western Australia (WA).

The engineering company will immediately start the supply and assembly of the complete shiploader, with completion expected in the second half of 2022.

Meanwhile, Civmec will supply 4,700t of modules such as conveyor, trusses and trestles under the contract assigned as part of the Iron Bridge Magnetite project.

Iron Bridge Magnetite project is a joint venture (JV) between iron ore company Fortescue Metals Group’s subsidiary FMG Iron Bridge and Formosa Steel IB.

Civmec CEO Patrick Tallon said: “We are extremely pleased to be given this opportunity to further support BHP in the delivery of a ship loader. This contract follows on from other smart modules and machines delivered by Civmec for BHP projects as part of our partnership delivering high quality, complex machines.

“We are also privileged to have secured a long-term contract with Woodside, having delivered several projects to them in the past. This contract will provide us with a base load of work and allow us to work with Woodside as a partner to optimise efficiencies and savings in the delivery of our services to them over the longer term.”

In May, Civmec secured a contract for significant development works at Rio Tinto’s Mesa A operational hub in the Robe Valley, WA.
