ASX-listed contractor Civmec has secured new work across its maintenance, manufacturing, and construction divisions including with the likes of BHP and Rio Tinto.

The first of the contracts, which have a combined value of more than $100 million, is for plant maintenance and major overhaul and repair services at Alcoa of Australia’s Kwinana, Pinjarra and Wagerup alumina refineries.

The scope of works include scaffolding, mechanical, refractory, and electrical services over a three-year period.

In its manufacturing division, Civmec has been contracted to build and trial four train load-out bins for BHP’s Jimblebar iron ore mine in the Pilbara, 41 kilometres east of Newman.

Civmec, which recently disclosed it had a $1.1 billion order book, has also been tasked with manufacturing and modularising shuttle and conveyor trusses, platework and stick steel for Rio’s Gudai-Darri project, also in the Pilbara, where production is expected to start in early 2022.

Under another contract with Rio, Civmec’s construction business will deliver a fixed-plant workshop for the Mesa A project where it is already undertaking structural, mechanical, piping, and electrical works.

Further, Civmec has been a awarded a civil package that includes earthworks and pipework on a debottlenecking project for Pilbara iron ore miner Roy Hill Holdings.

Business News recently reported the Henderson-based contractor would also build a 217-metre pedestrian bridge over Winthrop Avenue to Kings Park in Nedlands, as part of the state government’s $6.3 million Kids’ Bridge project.

That contract was awarded by Main Roads Western Australia.

Civmec chief executive Pat Tallon said the contract was a standout award for the company.

"This award sees us being accountable for both the supply and installation of another important piece of government infrastructure as a tier-one contractor,” he said.

“We look forward to enhancing our relationship with Main Roads through the process and subsequently realising further opportunities in this sector.”

Civmec had also built the Matagarup Bridge, which connects East Perth and Optus Stadium.

Shares in the contractor closed up 7 per cent to trade at 45 cents.
