Property group Pindan has secured a $3.4 million contract for work on Fortescue Metals Group’s Iron Bridge magnetite project in the Pilbara.
Pindan will consturct meeting buildings, a crib building, a permit office and electrical technician's office at Fortescue's Herb Elliot Port facility in Port Hedland, about 145 kilometres north of Iron Bridge.
He said the construction team would be on site for around nine weeks.
“We’re excited about this win and look forward to further contributing to this important Western Australian project as it unfolds over the next few years,” Mr Gerber said.
The $US2.6 billion ($A3.7 billion) Iron Bridge project is run by Fortescue subsidiary FMG Magnetite and joint venture partner Formosa Steel.
It is expected to create around 3,000 jobs during construction as well as 900 full-time positions during operations.
The project will deliver 22 million tonnes of high-grade magnetite per annum, with first ore scheduled for shipment mid-2022.
