Civmec has secured a contract to construct the civil component of Altura Mining’s Pilgangoora process plant, one of three major contracts awarded for the Pilgangoora lithium project in Western Australia.

Under the contract, Civmec will provide all concrete and civil works associated with the construction of the Pilgangoora process plant.

It will have 50 employees at its peak and will install around 5000m3 of concrete.

The first Civmec workers, as well as the concrete batch plant, will begin mobilising in May, with construction set to be completed by October 2017.

Altura awarded Qube Holdings subsidiary Qube Bulk a five year contract to provide transport logistics services to the Pilgangoora project. This will include loading at Pilgangoora mine stockyard, product transport in side tipping road trains to Port Hedland, construction and operation of a product storage shed in Port Hedland, and transport to port and ship loading using the patented Rotabox system.

Qube are set to begin planning and construction of the storage shed in Port Hedland and are expected to receive product from the mine in early 2018.

Altura also awarded Kalgoorlie Power Systems (KPS) a contract to provide an 11MW diesel fuelled power station.

The power station, comprised of dual fuel diesel/gas generators, will be owned and operated by KPS for a five year contract period.

Earlier this year, Altura awarded NRW Holdings a $110 million contract for mine development and drill and blast services at the Pilgangoora project.
