SIMPEC has secured over $5 million in scope extensions with MSP Engineering and Iluka Resources in Western Australia, solidifying a $48 million contract portfolio during the 2019 financial year.

The latest extensions are either under way or will commence shortly, according to the company.

SIMPEC received the original contracts in November and September last year, made up of a $1.7 million contract at Iluka’s Cataby mineral sands development and an extension from MSP at Talison Lithium’s Greenbushes mine, respectively.

SIMPEC managing director Mark Dimasi said the extensions were a direct result of the company’s strong performance on site.

“With safety at the forefront of everything we do, SIMPEC is performing very well across all projects and working very closely with our clients,” Dimasi said.

“I take this opportunity to thank all our client personnel for their ongoing support and our team for performing extremely well on our projects.”

SIMPEC’s recent additional work follows on the $10 million contract awarded by ATCO Structures and Logistics to supply and install the electrical, communications and dry fire systems for an 800-room mine camp at Fortescue Metals Group’s Eliwana site in the Pilbara.

The engineering contractor now has nearly 150 personnel and contractors working across all its current contracts, which SIMPEC considers a substantial growth over the past six months.
