SIMPEC banks more Western Australia work as order book continues to grow

WestStar Industrial’s engineering contractor business, SIMPEC, has been awarded an additional A$2.5 million ($1.7 million) in scope extensions to its current contracts in Western Australia, bringing its total year-to-date order book to over A$50 million.

The SIMPEC team has grown substantially over the past 6 months and has deployed over 150 personnel and contractors now working across all of SIMPEC’s current contracts. This includes work for MSP Engineering (the Tianqi Lithium Kwinana processing plant) and Iluka Resources (for the Cataby mineral sands project), in addition to a contract with Fortescue Metals Group for its new Eliwana iron ore project.

SIMPEC Managing Director, Mark Dimasi, said: “SIMPEC is performing exceptionally well on site and the contract extensions are a good indication of this.”

With this award, the WestStar group has posted a year-to-date order total in excess of A$50 million.

The company said: “With major contract works underway or soon to commence, the company expects a strong start to the new financial year. SIMPEC continues to tender strongly for new work and expects outcomes from these tendering activities in due course.”
