Following large contracts won in WA last year, mine infrastructure construction specialist Decmil has been awarded contracts worth $71 million for Gina Rinehart’s $13 billion Roy Hill iron ore mine in the Pilbara.
Decmil`s major construction infrastructure contracts last year included Chevron`s Wheatstone LNG project ($119 million) in May, and Rio Tinto`s Pilbara iron ore operations (2 x $30 million) in July and December.
When added to these two new contracts, for the design, civil engineering and construction of rail and port facilities, as well as the associated infrastructure, Decmil and its sub-contractors are providing job opportunities for thousands of workers in various occupations.
