GCS secures BHP iron contract

Redcliffe-based Global Construction Services has secured a contract to provide scaffolding for the construction of BHP Billiton Ltd's Newman HUB, part of the mining giant's iron ore expansion plans.

Below is the announcement:

Construction services group Global Construction Services (ASX: GCS, "GCS Group") is pleased to announce that its GCS Northwest business has been awarded a major scaffolding supply contract in Newman, northern Western Australia.

The contract is being led by one of GCS Group's key clients Monadelphous Engineering Associates Pty Ltd for construction of BHP Billiton's Newman HUB in northern Western Australia.

The Newman HUB project forms part of BHP Billiton Iron Ore's Rapid Growth Project 4 (RGP4) which will expand BHP Billiton Iron Ore's capacity in the Pilbara.

The Newman Hub will provide a central ore processing and rail loading facility to allow processed iron ore to be railed directly to the port.

The two year project will be managed by GCS Northwest and is scheduled to commence in mid July 2008.

GCS Northwest will supply the site scaffolding requirements for the construction of the new HUB processing facilities including screening, car dumpers and conveyor at the Mt Whaleback mine in Newman.

GCS Northwest has also been awarded a number of other projects in Tom Price, Newman, Port Hedland and Karratha. GCS Northwest infrastructure is now in place and personnel are working across a range of projects throughout the region.
