Henderson-based Civmec will start a maintenance services contract with iron ore miner Roy Hill Holdings next month, building on work it is undertaking for major players Rio Tinto, Alcoa of Australia and Fortescue Metals Group.

Under the contract, Civmec will provide mechanical, scaffolding, electrical, conveyor and shutdown management services.

The contractor has been expanding its maintenance service offering during the past 18 months, with the move starting to pay dividends.

The company has secured a long-term maintenance contract with Alcoa at its Wagerup, Kwinana and Pinjarra facilities, and is undertaking works at Rio Tinto’s Yarwun and QAL alumina facilities.

Civmec is providing maintenance services for Cockburn Cement and delivering ongoing services at Fortescue sites across regional Western Australia.

The division has also recently been awarded additional works from MSP Engineering for the Tianqi lithium hydroxide processing plant in Kwinana.

Civmec chief executive Pat Tallon said the expansion represented a strategic move by the company.

“Having worked collaboratively with Roy Hill in the initial project delivery of their port facilities, I am very pleased that we are able to continue the relationship,” he said.

“We see the commitment towards the continual growth of a maintenance division as a very strategic move to support the significant requirement to maintain the many new plants that have recently been constructed in the minerals and metals, and oil and gas sectors across Australia.

“Having held a direct workforce in excess of 3,000 employees over the past 12 months, including an extensive resource pool of approximately 1,000 maintenance specialists which is increasing as we secure more opportunities in this space, we are confident we will be considered a trusted partner to our clients to fulfil their ongoing maintenance requirements.”
