Simpec wins Greenbushes lithium contract extension

Talison Lithium's Greenbushes mine in Western Australia.

Simpec has secured a contract extension from MSP Engineering at Talison Lithium’s Greenbushes mine in Western Australia.

The WestStar Industrial engineering subsidiary has added $7.8 million of work to its order book with this $1.8 million extension.

Simpec will supply and install site wide concrete footings, the final tails pump and piping system and chute fabrication works for the chemical grade plant two (CGP2) project under the new scope at Greenbushes.

MSP is the head contractor for the design and construction of the CGP2 project, which will more than double the annual capacity of the Talison mine to 1.3Mt of lithium concentrate.

Simpec managing director Mark Damasi said, “We are pleased to have gained extra work on this high-profile project that is helping to underpin expansion of the lithium processing industry in Western Australia.”

The CGP2 project is due for commissioning in the second quarter of 2019.
