Monadelphous Group wins $100 million Caval Ridge mine contract

Australian engineering company Monadelphous Group has won the $100 million contract to construct the coal handling plant for the BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) Caval Ridge mine project.

Monadelphous is set for an immediate start and expect to be completed by the end of 2013.

The contract is for the provision of civil, structural, mechanical, piping and electrical works for the coal handling plant, located south-east of Moranbah in Queensland.

Australian Mining reported BHP’s approval of the Caval Ridge project in November 2011, a project with a predicted mine life of more than 60 years producing approximately 5.5 million tonnes of hard coking coal annually.
