Pacific Energy wins Sandfire power station contract

Pacific Energy has won the contract to build a 20MW power station at Sandfire Resources’ Degrussa copper gold project.

Working through its subsidiary Kalgoorlie Power Systems (KPS), Pacific will construction and run the power station from 1 February next year.

Adam Boyd, Pacific’s managing director, said “the signing of this new seven-plus year contract represents the largest single contract win since we acquired KPS in May 2009. It also comes on the back of recent strong contract wins and expands KPS’ operations across 17 mine sites in Australia”.

Pacific Energy was also recently awarded the contract for a 3MW power station at Avoca Mining’s Chalice gold mine.

The contract will see Pacific build, own and maintain the power station for a term of three years, starting from 12 September.

Avoca’s Chalice gold mine is located at the Higginsville gold project near Kambalda, in Western Australia.
