Decmil Group wins work on Adani’s Carmichael coal project

Decmil Group says it has been awarded two packages of work on the Adani-owned Carmichael coal project in Queensland, Australia.

The two contracts, worth some A$41.4 million ($28.5 million) in total, will see its Queensland business unit design and construct the rail accommodation on the rail network, with the second package being an early contractor services (ECS) contract to scope the bulk earthworks required along the primary freight rail alignment.

Should the ECS be successfully completed it is anticipated Decmil will enter into contractfor the construction works, it said.

The development of the first stage 10 Mt/y coal mine at Carmichael, which was given the thumbs up to start construction earlier this year, will see a circa-200 km narrow gauge rail network built that connects to existing rail infrastructure and goes from the mine to the Port of Abbot Point. The initial design capacity of this line is for 40 Mt/y, with the ability to further expand, according to Adani.

Work is expected to commence immediately on both packages, according to Decmil.
