RCR Tomlinson says it has won $170 million worth of contracts for work across Australia, including at BHP Billiton’s operations in the Pilbara.

The engineering group said the work with BHP Billiton included the provision of rail signalling upgrade works at the mining giant’s Nelson Point train unloading station, as well as the supply of a cooling system for its Mooka ore car repair workshop in Port Hedland.

RCR also signed a five-year maintenance agreement for apron feeders across BHP’s iron ore operations across the state.

RCR also received a five-year contract for the provision of maintenance and shutdown services with a major (undisclosed) NSW utility provider, and a separate contract with Sydney Water for a major upgrade to the Picton recycled water treatment plant.

A $50 million contract was awarded by Visionstream Australia for the supply of maintenance services to over 40,000 facilities and network assets across Australia, under a five-year term.

“We are pleased to see the continued award of contracts across the business which supports our growth targets for this financial year,” RCR managing director Paul Dalgleish said.

“These new contracts further boost our order book for FY17 and beyond.

“Our relationship with long term clients continues to grow based on our approach of delivering innovative solutions that provide improved cost and reliability to our customers’ operations.”

The contract wins follow news last week that the engineering group had won a $120 million contract to build processing infrastructure at Rio Tinto’s Silvergrass iron ore mine in the Pilbara.
