Mining and utilities services company Cape has been awarded a contract by Rio Tinto at its Robe Valley project in the Pilbara.
The scope of the contract includes relocation and modifications to existing electrical services, installation of both overhead and underground 33kV powerlines, and installation of pole and pad mounted transformers.
Cape said the contract is valued at approximately $12 million dollars and will take six months to complete with a peak workforce head count of 36.
“It is very pleasing to be awarded this contract which is highly technical and will require significant interface management as we will be working in a live brownfields environment,” Mr Hutchinson said.
“This contract will draw on CAPE’s extensive underground services pedigree encompassing power, water and communications infrastructure as well as civil and HDD.”
