Decmil win extension of contract at Roy Hill

Decmil has won a contract for further work at the Roy Hill mine.

The contract, worth approximately $40 million, will see Decmil provide a variety of structural mechanical and underground services for Roy Hill EPC.

This work includes the installation of conduits, pits, fire water pipework and HV cables; structural work on the train loadout facilities and tailing and desanding systems, and the erection of structural steel, mechanical equipment and piping, and the electrical and instrumentation works.

Importantly, the contract also demonstrates a push to increase safety at the site, with Decmil awarded the contract for the provision of crane services.

The site has seen a number of lifting and elevated work platform incidents at the site, with a ban on the use of cranes and lifting equipment issued for January by the Department of Mines and Petroleum.

There were no injuries in any of the incidents.

The new contract complements the existing work being carried out by Decmil for Roy Hill's port, rail, and fuel infrastructure projects.
