Decmil wins Rio construction contract

Decmil has won a $30 million contract for Rio Tinto's iron ore operations in the Pilbara.

The contract will see it construction major infrastructure on site, such as a heavy vehicle workshop and associated facilities, a first aid building, a security gatehouse, a communications hut, and a radio base station facility, the company says.

Scott Criddle, Decmil's CEO, said "it provides confirmation that at a time when tere is talk of a slowing down in the iron ore sector, Decmil's long standing relationships with major mining companies places us in a very strong position to continue to win significant contracts.
