WestStar Industrial subsidiary Alltype Engineering has won a $25 million contract with APA Group to deliver a new gas compressor station within the Goldfields Gas Pipeline in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
As part of the arrangement, Alltype will oversee a broad scope of infrastructure and construction works in support of the Northern Goldfields Interconnect (NGI) project.
The project, which is being overseen by APA, is seeking to connect the APA Goldfields Gas Pipeline and the Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas pipeline.
Alltype’s contribution to the project will be marked by the construction of a new green field compressor station at the inlet of the new pipeline, referred to as the Ambania Compressor Station.
The new connection will be situated in Western Australia’s Midwest region, about 50 kilometres east of Geraldton.
Alltype will be responsible for establishing the site, earthworks, civil, concrete, structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation scopes.
WestStar said the contract was the single largest it had been awarded in its history.
“Having worked with APA Group for over 15 years in various roles, we are excited to be awarded this project that fits well within our delivery capabilities and project team experience,” Alltype managing director Kelvin Andrijich said.
“We are equally pleased that this capability has been recognised by APA Group through consistent project performance for the past three years, reflecting the commitment and capability of our people in the turnkey construction project space.”
Works on the station are tipped to start immediately, with completion estimated for the third quarter of 2022.
WestStar was trading at 2.2 cents a share, as at 2:46pm AEDT.
