Malaga’s Hertel Modern has won a three-year, $90 million contract to provide paint, insulation and fireproofing services on Chevron’s Gorgon liquefied natural gas development.
Work is due to commence early next year, Hertel Modern managing director Andrew White said.
Mr White said the contract would require a workforce of around 200, including 20 trainee positions.
“The award of this important contract to our Malaga-based company is a great boost for our workforce and will benefit not only our growth but also our suppliers in the area,” Mr White said.
“Our experts will be able to train new workers in the highly specialised areas of cryogenic insulation and fireproofing applications.
“It will also help us grow our capability and develop the reputation gained in the Australian LNG industry since the early 1980s.”
Mr White said most materials required to complete the works would be prepared at its Malaga sheet metal fabrication facility.
