Carmichael mine $74-million contract Arrium Steel Adani

For those who are following the progress of the Adani Carmichael mine development in the Queensland Galilee Basin, the following article provides additional background information on Arrium; the company who has won the contract to provide the entire double tracked rail lines from Abbot Point to The Carmichael mine.

The news release confirmed the $74-million deal to buy railway steel from Arrium’s Whyalla steelworks in South Australia.

The contract says Adani will contract Arrium to supply 54,000 tonnes of steel for the proposed 400-kilometre railway line linking its proposed Carmichael coal mine with Abbot Point on the coast.

The Adani contract is a real life saver for Arrium, after struggling to stay in business due to a tightening of the local steel market. Jobs were in danger of being lost as well as a potential take over by interested parties.

South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy chief executive Rebecca Knol said the deal was a vital breakthrough for Arrium’s and the city of Whyalla.

Adani is also seeking a $900 million taxpayer-subsidised loan for the rail line to the Abbot Point coal terminal.

“There is more work to be done but this contract is a major step forward,” Adani Australia chief executive officer Jeyakumar Janakaraj said.

Adani build huge solar farm in Whyalla

Adani is also cementing itself into the Whyalla community by funding construction of a $200 million Whyalla solar plant which is scheduled to start late next year after  signing a deal to lease a parcel of land.

350 jobs for Whyalla locals

The 120MW solar generation plant is scheduled to be finished by late 2018, with the construction phase expected to create 350 jobs.

Adani said the project had the potential to eventually reach a capacity of up to 150 MW, which would make it one of the largest solar farms in Australia.

Whyalla Mayor Lyn Breuer said it was a big boost for Whyalla and would bring “major benefits” to the region.
