Sedgman wins Baralaba coal mine rail facility contract

Segdman has won a $36.7 million contract for Cockatoo Coal's Baralaba mine expansion.

The expansion will see Cockatoo increase Baralaba's capacity to stack, reclaim, and rail product from one mtpa to more than three mtpa.

Sedgman's contract will see it provide the detail design, supply, fabrication, construction, and commissioning of the train load out and stockyard facilities at Moura.

The project is split in to two parts, with the design and procurement portion valued at $19.4 million and the construction section valued at $17.3 million.

Sedgman is already finalising the design and procurement portion, with final approvals of the construction component slated for November, and total completion of the upgraded facilities scheduled for August next year.

The site's expansion, including the rail load out facility, was approved in late August, and is predicted to cost the miner around $313 million.
