QCoal Group has awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the Byerwen Coal Mine in Central Queensland.
CIMIC Group’s mineral processing company, Sedgman, will deliver an expansion on the first phase of the project, which Sedgman was awarded in February 2018, and includes the duplication of the existing coal handling and processing plant.
The contract will generate revenue of $155 million for CIMIC Group.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer, Michael Wright, said, “The CIMIC Group has a long standing and successful relationship with QCoal which started in 2007, providing EPC services through Sedgman and mining services through Thiess.
Sedgman Managing Director, Grant Fraser, said, “We are pleased to continue our strong, long-term relationship with QCoal and look forward to assisting with the expansion of the Byerwen mine in a timeframe that optimises QCoal’s benefit.”
Early work has commenced and the project will conclude in early 2020.
