Thiess, CIMIC’s mining services provider, has secured a $300 million contract extension at Harum Energy’s Mahakam Sumber Jaya (MSJ) coal mine in Indonesia.

The contract extension will run until March 2021, extending a 13-year relationship at the operation.

Thiess managing director Douglas Thompson said the company was delighted to be extending its partnership with Harum Energy.

“I’m looking forward to our strong team in Indonesia continuing to deliver industry-leading safety and productivities, providing enduring value for our client into the future,” he said.

Harum, one of Indonesia’s first private coal miners, has been operating for more than 20 years. The company produces more than three million tonnes of coal per annum from its mines in the East Kalimantan region.

CIMIC chief executive officer Adolfo Valderas commented: “This extension reflects Thiess’ ability to continue growing our mining business globally, with the team delivering sustainable solutions for our clients.”
