Head contractor at the Roy Hill project has transferred Laing O’Rourke’s terminated contract to Queensland company Goodline.
Laing O'Rourke was in charge of the construction of structural steel and associated mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation works for the massive mine.
Samsung said Goodline will take over, with the company mobilising at the Roy Hill site.
"Goodline has previously worked on the Roy Hill project and is familiar with the overall construction schedule. We look forward to working with them," Samsung said.
"We have received a lot of expressions of interest from workers previously contracted to Laing O'Rourke to continue working on the Roy Hill project through the new contractor.
"All of the EOIs received have been forwarded to Goodline for necessary processing."
Meanwhile, heavy engineering contractor Civmec will take over from Laing O’Rourke in building the ore stockyard facilities to support the intermodal and export operations, comprising car dumpers, interconnection conveyors and transfer stations.
