Pacific extends MinRes contract to $30m

Tuesday, 21 August, 2018 - 15:49

Pacific Energy has added a 17-megawatt power station to its recent contract at Mineral Resources' Wodgina lithium project, taking the total contract value to $30 million.

Perth-based Pacific said in April that it had secured a contract to build a 52MW power station.

MinRes has now issued a variation to Pacific’s Contract Power for the design, installation and commissioning of a further 17MW of temporary power.

“We thank MinRes for their confidence in selecting Contract Power in this highly important project,” Pacific managing director James Cullen said.

“The award is a strong endorsement of Contract Power’s capabilities to deliver projects in the gas and diesel remote power generation space for the resource sector.”

Pacific also said it had recently begun work on a $2 million Horizon Power contract to supply a utility scale Samsung lithium battery in Onslow.

Pacific will integrate the battery with gas and solar generation facilities. 

Shares in Pacific finished 0.88 per cent higher at 58 cents each today.
