BHP has announced today that it has awarded a $75 million contract to services company Decmil Australia, thanks to the group’s successful delivery on several BHP iron ore projects in Western Australia.
The award is part of a $105 million expansion of Mulla Mulla village in order to bolster operations at Mining Area C and the upcoming South Flank project.
Decmil chief executive officer and group managing director Scott Criddle was pleased with the results.
“Decmil has achieved great success in delivering complex projects across the region, reinforcing our expertise and 40 years of experience as a sector contractor,” he said. “We look forward to further solidifying our growth path and long-standing relationship with BHP.”
Decmil is involved in many major infrastructure projects, including oil and gas and mining infrastructure, roadworks, detention centres, solar farms, residential accomodation and many more.
It has previously collaborated with BHP on projects such as a tailings storage facility at Olympic Dam in South Australia and a nickel mine and processing plant at Ravensthorpe in Western Australia.
Other major clients the company has worked with include Roy Hill and Fortescue.
