Pindan has been awarded a $45 million contract to build a 780-room construction camp at Rio Tinto’s $3.5 billion Koodaideri project in the Pilbara.

Last month, Rio gave the iron project the green light, with construction set to begin next year.

Speaking at a WA Mining Club lunch today, Rio Tinto’s Chris Salisbury said the company spent $13.2 billion last year with 9,000 Australian businesses.

“In fact, our local procurement program is designed to make it easier for local businesses to work with Rio Tinto and our major suppliers,” he said.

“We have local procurement portal, set up a local procurement team, raised awareness of local opportunities, help local businesses put their best foot forward in order to win work, and adjusted our payment terms for small businesses.

“This has already started to yield positive results, with local suppliers awarded 90% of the work published on our local procurement portal.

“Businesses like Pindan, a Perth based construction company that was recently awarded a $45 million contract to build a 780-room construction camp at our new Koodaideri iron ore mine.”
