Engineering and infrastructure services firm Downer EDI has been awarded a $142 million contract to carry out electrical work on a resource project in the Pilbara. "This win extends Downer's position as the leading electrical and instrumentation provider in the west and demonstrates confidence in Downer's ability to deliver on large-scale projects," chief executive Grant Fenn said in a statement. The electrical and instrumentation work would start in late 2011 and completion expected by the second quarter of 2013, the company said. As of June 30, Downer had about $20 billion worth of work in hand, with $7.5 billion in mining, $5.2 billion in rail, $5.2 billion in works and $2.2 billion in engineering.
