Civmec secures Roy Hill, Rio Tinto contracts

Roy Hill is the single largest iron ore mine in Australia

Civmec’s focus on strengthening its maintenance service offering has paid off with the award of contracts from a number of leading Australian mining companies.

The company’s capability extends to major and modular shutdowns; sustaining capital works; optimisation and equipment upgrade projects; minor works; emergency repair and replacement; and routine maintenance.

In July, Civmec was awarded a maintenance contract with Roy Hill to provide shutdown and maintenance services at its Pilbara mine and port.

The first shutdown campaign in this long-term services contract is planned to start this month. The contract includes providing mechanical, scaffolding, electrical, conveyor and shutdown management services.

Civmec has invested in dedicated maintenance facilities nationally, together with bolstering its maintenance management team capability, training and recruiting key personnel to lead this growing division of the business.

This investment has supported the growth of the company’s specialised maintenance service offering over the past 18 months.

Civmec has secured ongoing, long-term maintenance contracts with Alcoa Australia at its Wagerup, Kwinana and Pinjarra facilities; is undertaking ongoing works at Rio Tinto’s Yarwun and QAL alumina facilities; and delivering ongoing works at Fortescue Metals Group sites across Western Australia.

It has also been awarded additional works from MSP Engineering for the Tianqi Lithium hydroxide processing plant.

Civmec chief executive officer Patrick Tallon said, “We see the commitment towards the continual growth of a maintenance division as a very strategic move to support the significant requirement to maintain the many new plants that recently been constructed in the minerals and metals, and oil and gas sectors across Australia.”
