A WA design and construction firm has won a $55 million contract for a project at Rio Tinto’s Western Turner Syncline 2 mine.
Kerman has been awarded the contract by Mondium for the design, construction and commissioning of non-process infrastructure facilities and an explosives compound at the site.
The contract includes a fixed plant workshop complete with amenities and office buildings; a heavy vehicle diesel storage and refuelling facility; and two remote facility buildings with offices, ablutions and crib rooms.
An ammonium nitrate and emulsion storage facility and explosives compound also form part of the contract.
Kerman managing director Chris Kerman said the business was looking forward to working at WTS2 and building a business relationship with Mondium.
“This contract award builds on Kerman’s previous successful project outcomes in the Pilbara, in particular for Rio Tinto and other major mining companies,” he said. Construction is set to begin later this year.
