:: Sedgman wins $9m Sonoma CPP Upgrade Contract

Sedgman Limited has announced that it has secured a $9 million contract to design and construct an upgrade of the Sonoma mine’s coal processing plant (CPP).

Located south of Collinsville at the northern end of Queensland’s Bowen Basin, the Sonoma mine is owned by a joint venture consisting of Australian coal producer Q Coal, US iron ore producer Cliffs Natural Resources, Japan’s JFE Shoji, Taiwanese steel producer, China Steel and Watami Trading.

Sedgman Coal’s Chief Operating Officer Mr Steve van Barneveld said this latest contract was the direct result of the Company’s successful delivery of Sonoma’s original Coal Handling and Processing Plant.

“Sedgman will design, construct and commission the upgrade which will improve plant efficiency, performance and yield at the existing facility when completed in the second half of 2009," Mr van Barneveld said.

Sedgman’s Managing Director Mark Read said the Sonoma upgrade reinforced the long term, close working relationship Sedgman has enjoyed with project proponent Q Coal and its partners since 2005.

“Sedgman’s Coal Division continues to service a significant number of domestic and international feasibility studies associated with our $4.3 billion pipeline of targeted opportunities," Mr Read said.
