SRG Global has secured preferred tenderer status for a $90 million multi-disciplinary asset services contract with Alcoa of Australia.

The scope of services includes heavy mechanical and electrical maintenance, specialist rope access and scaffold services at Alcoa’s alumina refinery in Kwinana, Western Australia.

This contract goes for up to five years. SRG Global expects to commence mobilisation to site early next year.

SRG Global managing director David Macgeorge said this contract award was a very significant announcement for the company in its asset services division.

“(It) showcases our ability to deliver multi-disciplinary integrated solutions for Tier 1 customers,” Macgeorge said.

Alcoa’s Kwinana refinery extracts alumina from bauxite produced in the company’s Huntly and Willowdale mines in the Darling Downs, Western Australia.

The company exports the majority of the alumina to global customers, with a small amount shipped to its Victorian smelter.

Alcoa refines around nine million tonnes of alumina each year and its alumina production in Western Australia accounts for around 7 per cent of total world production.

“We look forward to building a long-term partnership with Alcoa to deliver value-engineered maintenance and access services that drives value for their operations,” Macgeorge concluded.
