UGL Limited announced in August that it had secured a new $99.45 million contract for structural, mechanical and piping works at BHP Billiton Iron Ore’s Jimblebar mine in Western Australia.
Under the contract, UGL’s scope of work includes the fabrication and installation of equipment associated with coarse ore stockpile, secondary crushing, scalping and product screening and interconnecting conveyors. Site mobilization commenced in July 2012.
“This is an important win for UGL and we look forward to successfully contributing to the expansion of this iron ore development in Western Australia,” said UGL Managing Director and CEO Richard Leupen.
“UGL has a long history in the iron ore industry having been a participant in many of the major iron ore development and expansion projects in Western Australia since the early 1980s. We continue to pursue a substantial pipeline of opportunities in the Australian resources sector which offer a balanced risk profile and the potential to deliver profitable growth,” Leupen said.
