Sedgman has been awarded $100 million of contracts with Mach Energy and QCoal to operate and maintain the Mount Pleasant and Byerwen coal handling and preparation plants (CHPP).

The contract with Mach Energy, to operate and maintain the Mount Pleasant site at Muswellbrook in New South Wales, will generate $75 million in revenue over three years.

Sedgman’s contract with QCoal, to operate and maintain the Byerwen site at Glenden in Queensland, will deliver $25 million in revenue over one year.

Grant Fraser, Sedgman managing director, said the company’s strong relationship with QCoal had developed over many years.

“We have been closely involved throughout the Byerwen project from the engineering, procurement and construction of the stockpile, train load-out and CHPP,” Fraser said.

“At Mount Pleasant we are building on CIMIC Group’s long established partnership with Mach Energy and drawing on our relationship with Thiess, also a member of the CIMIC Group, to deliver a seamless service that will maximise the value from this site.”

The Mount Pleasant site will launch operations by the end of this year. The Byerwen CHPP is in the commissioning phase.

CIMIC chief executive officer Michael Wright said, “Sedgman has a strong track record of reliably operating and maintaining CHPPs, and these further contract wins highlight the company’s strength in end-to-end mineral processing solutions.”
