Transfield Services win two Pilbara contracts

Transfield Services have won two engineering design and construction contracts in the Pilbara with Rio Tinto and Fortescue metals.

The work, worth around $100 million consist of a one year $65 million contract to deign and construct Rio Tinto's Parker Point fuels storage terminal at Dampier and a one year $35 million contract to construct diesel storage facilities at Fortescue's Solomon mine.

The fuel storage terminal, which will receive fuel via a 1.8 kilometre jetty, distributes the fuel by rail, and is part of Rio's wider iron ore expansion in the Pilbara.

The design and construction of the diesel storage facilities and distribution infrastructure for Fortescue will support the development of Solomon, and is located near railway and road infrastructure 30 minutes from Port Hedland.

Peter Goode, Transfield's CEO explained "these contracts deliver on our strategy to provide higher value front end services to the resources and energy industry".

The work will be carried out by Transfield's subsidiary ICD.

Transfield has previously provided drilling services for Fortescue at its Christmas Creek, Nyidinghu, and North Star iron ore sites.
