Engineering company Monadelphous has been awarded new contracts in the mining and resources industry worth a combined value of around $55 million.

Monadelphous received a “notice of award” to provide mechanical decommissioning, demolition, civil, structural, mechanical and piping works associated with surface infrastructure at the Oyu Tolgoi copper-gold project in Mongolia.

Oyu Tolgoi LLC operates the project and Monadelphous’ contract works are expected to be complete in early 2019.

In addition, Monadelphous has been awarded a contract for piping modification and fabrication for Technip Oceania on the hook-up and commissioning phase of Shell’s Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in the Browse Basin offshore Western Australia.

Meanwhile, the engineering company’s renewable energy business, Zeniviron, has been awarded a contract, in consortium with Vestas – Australian Wind Technology, to provide engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the 54MW Salt Creek Wind Farm for Tilt Renewables in Victoria.

Monadelphous managing director Rob Velletri said the diverse nature of these contracts underlined the success of the company’s markets and growth strategy.

“We are particularly pleased to have secured an initial package of work on the Oyu Tolgoi underground project in Mongolia, which highlights the continuing expansion of our core services overseas,” Velletri said.
