SIMPEC says it has been contracted by First Quantum Minerals (FQM) to deliver an electrical and instrumentation (E&I) package at the Ravensthorpe nickel operations’ Shoemaker-Levy project, in Western Australia.
This material, newly awarded contract is SIMPEC’s first with FQM, the company said.
The contract scope is for the E&I portion of work for Shoemaker-Levy, with the value expected to be around A$9 million ($6.8 million).
The works are planned to commence immediately and be completed by mid-2021, the WestStar Industrial subsidiary says.
With FQM restarting Ravensthorpe in early 2020, it has been expanding into a second stage nickel laterite deposit, Shoemaker-Levy, to provide the operation with a long-term life of around 30 years.
