Fortescue's Solomon Hub.

Monadelphous has secured $120 million worth of new contracts and additional work for resources companies including Fortescue Metals Group and BHP Billiton.

Two of the new contracts are with subsidiaries of Fortescue, including a three-year contract, with a two-year option, for fixed plant maintenance crane services and shutdown crane services with FMG Solomon at the Solomon Hub iron ore site in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

The second Fortescue contract is to provide abrasive blasting, cleaning and relining of up to 900 steel ore wagons for subsidiary, The Pilbara Infrastructure at Port Hedland.

Monadelphous’ contract with BHP is to upgrade a water treatment plant providing the potable water supply, treatment and distribution system at the Mining Area C iron ore operation in northwest WA.

Perth-based Monadelphous also received an order to provide facilities maintenance services at the Wheatstone LNG project near Onslow, WA for a 12-month period, with two further one-year options, under an existing agreement with Chevron.

The final contract is for the supply, fabrication, pre-assembly and delivery of structural steel, conveyers and plate work with Brolton Group at the Hanson Bass Point Quarry expansion project in Shellharbour in New South Wales.

Mondalephous managing director Rob Veletri said with these contracts the company was continuing to build on key customer relationships and expanding its services to new customers.

“We are particularly pleased with the award of the new crane services contract which is in line with our strategy of extending our service offering to core markets and we look forward to developing our relationship with Fortescue Metals Group,” Velletri said.
