BHP awards SubZero $2m contract

Mining services company SubZero Group has won a $2 million dozer push works contract at BHP Billiton’s Mt Arthur Coal mine.

The contract will run for around four months with a possibility of a 12 month extension.

SubZero’s mining service division will be delivering the contract, the company said in a statement.

The company’s managing director Scott Farrell said: “SubZero has been hiring equipment and machinery to mining companies for more than 10 years and is pleased to win this contract as a newly listed entity.

“We look forward to being able to value add to BHP Billiton’s Mt Arthur Coal operations.”

Previously SVC Group, it obtained 100 per cent of the issued capital of SubZero Group in a backdoor listing and changed its name to SubZero in April this year.

The company won a $5.9 million infrastructure and poly contract with BHP Billiton in April to upgrade a section of the water network at the Mt Arthur Coal mine, Proactive Investors Australia said.
