MACA Limited has announced three new civil contract awards with a total value of approximately A$115 million ($79.5 million), two of which are for mining companies in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
The contractor has been awarded an early works contract on Rio Tinto’s Western Range Project, 8 km west of Paraburdoo in the Pilbara.
The project, which is expected to generate approximately A$60 million in revenue, consists of pre-approval works for construction of a camp pad and access road, in addition to crushing and screening work.
The delivery of the works will commence in the second half of 2022 for a duration of approximately 12 months.
MACA has also been awarded a further civil works package with Roy Hill Iron Ore Pty Ltd at the Roy Hill iron ore operation in the Pilbara. The Roy Hill project is owned by Hancock Prospecting Pty Ltd, Marubeni Corporation, POSCO and China Steel Corporation, and is 115 km north of Newman in the Pilbara.
The package consists of supporting Roy Hill with the Sierra Hydraulic Structure works, and is expected to generate A$16 million of revenue with delivery of the works commencing this month and expected to run through to the end of the calendar year.
MACA incoming CEO, David Greig, said of these contracts: “These awards are great examples of MACA’s deliberate pursuit of capital light earnings, improved revenue diversity and attractive delivery models. MACA looks forward to delivering these projects and contributing to successful outcomes for our clients.”
