BHP has awarded a new power generation and dewatering rental contract to Babylon Pump & Power, effective for at least six months.
Under the contract, Babylon will supply and install power generation and dewatering pumping equipment for BHP. The works will commence immediately, and commissioning is anticipated for November this year.
The contract is expected to inject $670,000 of revenue into Babylon during the 2019 financial year.
Babylon’s board of management is confident that the rental contract will go on a rolling basis at the end of the six-month term.
Babylon is also supplying power generation equipment to BHP’s Mining Area C Surplus Water Pipeline project in its iron ore mine site in the Pilbara. The contract was awarded by Adenco in July this year.
The works were expected to commission last month and will run for at least 52 weeks.
Babylon has previously won a contract for CSIRO’s CCS RDD project, where it provided rental dewatering equipment to an open pit nickel mine and a gold mine in Western Australia.
