Decmil wins Fortescue contracts

Decmil Group has won another new contract with Fortescue Metals Group, as well as variations of two of its existing contracts with the miner.

According to Decmil, this work is valued at approximately $137 million.

These contracts will see Decmil construct facilities for Fortescue's T155 Rail Support infrastructure project in the Pilbara, allowing Fortescue to increase its iron ore export capacity.

The work includes the construction of new rail car workshops, amenities buildings and administration centres, carrying out modifications to existing workshops, co-ordinating the fit out of the new rail car workshops, and the design and construction of a locomotive provisioning building.

This single contract is worth around $50 million.

In addition to this new contact, Decmil was also awarded variations to its existing work with Fortescue.

It will now build extra accommodation for a rail camp being built in the Pilbara for Fortescue.

Decmil was originally awarded the 200 person rail camp contract in February.

Additional rooms will also be added to the Fly Camp for the Wheatstone LNG project near Onslow.

These contracts are set to begin immediately, and are expected to be completed within the next 12 months.
