Rio Tinto has awarded NRW Holdings an early contract involvement (ECI) contract to provide project development services.
In a brief ASX announcement, NRW announced it would provide services and support through early contractor engagement and assist with providing construction expertise in the development of the sustaining capital program of work.
“The scope of works to be performed are not definitive and will be performed under a schedule of rates arrangement, as required,” NRW stated.
This is the latest agreement strengthening the relationship between Rio Tinto and NRW.
In February, NRW was awarded a major earthworks and civil works contract worth $37 million at Rio Tinto’s Marandoo iron ore mine in the Pilbara.
