SIMPEC managing director Mark Dimasi said: “To see the fruits of the concerted effort during the Fortescue Eliwana tender phase is very rewarding for the team.
“This Tier 1 project award is a significant achievement for SIMPEC, allowing the company to construct alongside some of Australia’s biggest construction companies.
“This is another commendable accomplishment with ATCO.”
SIMPEC’s scope of work is to design, supply, test and commission the electrical, communications and dry fire systems of the mine camp and will be delivered over a 9-month duration.
The award builds on a portfolio of camp work packages successfully undertaken by SIMPEC, specifically camp work completed at Iluka Resources Limited’s (ASX:ILU) Cataby Iron Sands Project and the work underway for Rio Tinto Limited’s (ASX:RIO) Angelas project.
