NRW Holdings has joined the likes of Clough, Decmil and CPB in securing work at BHP Billiton’s $4.6 billion South Flank iron ore project in the Pilbara, after announcing a $176 million contract to complete earthworks at the site.

The South Flank project is valued at $4.5 billion.

NRW Holdings has joined the likes of Clough, Decmil and CPB Contractors in securing work at BHP Billiton’s $4.6 billion South Flank iron ore project in the Pilbara, after announcing a $176 million contract to complete earthworks at the site.

Under the contract, NRW will complete bulk earthworks and concrete works for the overland conveyors and primary crushers, along with ancillary works for non-process infrastructure.

The contract is set to commence in September, and is expected to run for 15 months.

NRW said it would need over 350 personnel at the peak of its work.

Managing director Jules Pemberton said the bulk earthworks included access tracks, clearing pads and diversion drains.

“The award of this contract is particularly pleasing given the long standing association of NRW and BHP on resource projects and recognises NRW’s experience and capability in delivering projects in the Pilbara,” he said.

“The contract will also provide opportunities for employment and procurement for the areas Traditional Owners and local businesses”.

CPB Contractors, a subsidiary of ASX-listed Cimic Group, won a $260 million contract at South Flank last month, while engineering company Clough was chosen in May to conduct early works on non-processing infrastructure at the mine.

Decmil was selected in November for an upgrade to the Mulla Mulla mine village worth $105 million.

Shares in NRW jumped 9.55 per cent to $1.72 on the news this afternoon.
