Monadelphous has secured a $60 million contract for work on Rio Tinto’s Pilbara rail network, the latest of a string major contracts it has received from the mining giant.
The company said it would provide maintenance services across three packages of work for Rio under a three-year contract, with an option for a further two three-year extensions.
The scope of the work includes general track maintenance and renewals services on the coastal component of the rail network, resurfacing services across the entire Rio network, and rail workshop services.
Monadelphous managing director Rob Velletri said the contract was a significant strategic milestone for the company.
“This work will also provide us with the opportunity to strengthen and build on our existing capabilities in the rail sector,” he said.
The monetary value of each of the two contracts at West Angelas was not disclosed, but Monadelphous will supply and install the structural, mechanical, piping and electrical and instrumentation works associated with the construction of new iron ore facilities, as well as modifications to the existing plant.
On August 5, Monadelphous announced it secured $150 million worth of contracts with South32, Origin Energy and Rio.
The Rio contracts are comprised of refurbishment works of the high-grade iron ore screenhouse at Tom Price and a three-year contract to provide rope access and tank inspection services at its Yarwun alumina refinery near Gladstone in Queensland.
