CIMIC Group’s global mining services provider Thiess has secured $134 million worth of contracts to provide mining solutions to coal mines in Indonesia.
Thiess secured a contract with Cakrawala Langit Sejahtera (CLS) as well as a contract extension that builds on its partnership with Bayan Resources Group.
The contracts, worth a combined $134 million, will be delivered over 15 months through an innovative mining solution Thiess developed for adjoining pits in Indonesia’s South Kalimantan region.
The company will share resources across the Arutmin-owned, CLS managed Satui, and Bayan’s Wahana coal mines. It has also conducted mine planning and engineering to develop both of the mines as a single operation.
“This solution enables us to maximise coal recovery and extend the reserves of our client’s operations,” CIMIC’s group executive mining and mineral processing, and Thiess managing director, Michael Wright, said.
“This is a significant achievement for Thiess, and we are pleased to continue to build relationships based on the value we bring to clients.”
CIMIC Group CEO Adolfo Valderas said Thiess’ innovative approach would enhance their position in Indonesia.
Wright added that they are looking forward to working with CLS and continue their partnership with Bayan Resources.
