:: Sedgman Awarded $133m EPC Contract
Leading resource sector services company Sedgman Limited has announced it has been awarded a $133 million EPC contract for a project at the Groote Eylandt Mining Company (GEMCO) Manganese Mine. Groote Eylandt is located in the Gulf of Carpentaria in the Northern Territory. The project will increase the facility’s capacity by 0.5 Mt/a by re-processing manganese ore stored in tailings stockpiles. Sedgman’s scope of work comprises the detailed design, supply, fabrication, construction and commissioning of a sands beneficiation plant, port stockpile expansion and associated infrastructure.
Sedgman Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Peter Watson said this contract was directly negotiated with GEMCO following a period of close collaboration over the last 2 years. “Our involvement in this project commenced at the early feasibility study stage and we are excited that we have been chosen to deliver the project. This is another example of the strength of our “Create” and “Build” model as we were able to develop a strong relationship with and demonstrate value to GEMCO from concept through to execution.
“The sands beneficiation plant utilises process technologies that we have proven in other commodities and we have been able to leverage this experience together with our successful track record of project delivery in remote locations to provide an enhanced solution for our client. “It is also marks another important milestone in our diversification strategy with over 50% of our current order book in commodities other than our traditional coal market."
Detailed design has commenced on the project with completion scheduled for March 2016.
