More lithium and iron ore work for Monadelphous Group

Engineering company Monadelphous Group Ltd has secured new contracts and contract extensions totalling approximately A$125 million. It includes the lithium sector, where the company has been awarded two five-year contracts for the provision of maintenance services and sustaining capital projects, both with two-year extension options, at Albemarle Lithium’s operations in Kemerton, Western Australia (WA).

It says the award of this work builds on the strong relationship developed with Albemarle through the construction phase of the project, during which Monadelphous provided large-scale structural, mechanical and electrical and instrumentation services.

In addition, Monadelphous has been awarded a number of contracts with Rio Tinto’s iron ore operations in the Pilbara region of WA, including the replacement of an overland conveyor belt at the Western Turner Syncline mine; and a two-year extension to an existing contract for the provision of marine infrastructure
maintenance services and minor projects at the Cape Lambert and Dampier ports.

The company has also secured a contract under its BHP WA Iron Ore Site Engineering Panel Agreement to undertake bridge bearing replacements in the Port Hedland region of WA.

Finally, Alevro, Monadelphous’ heavy lifting services joint venture with Fagioli, has secured a contract with Bechtel to provide haulage and lifting services at Woodside’s Pluto Train 2 project in Karratha, WA.

Monadelphous Managing Director, Zoran Bebic, said the company was pleased to build on its relationships with existing customers Albemarle, Rio Tinto, BHP and Woodside. “Since the beginning of the financial year we have secured approximately A$1.1 billion in new contracts and contract extensions, highlighting the strength of our customer relationships and our reputation for reliable delivery,” he said.
