VDM wins Rio iron ore contracts

VDM Group has won contracts to develop and build facilities at Rio Tinto's Brockman 4 iron ore mine.

The $17 million contracts will see VDM's Western Operations provide the engineering design work and construction of a new plant maintenance workshop, heavy vehicle fuel facility, and related infrastructure, as well as additions to the mine's existing village facilities.

Work is expected to begin late next month and run over six months.

"This project sees VDM achieve another important step in our transformation and strategy to increase our activity in the resources sector," VDM managing director Andrew Broad stated.

VDM's Western Operations were also recently awarded $10 million in contracts for bulk earthworks in residential construction, as well as work with Western Power and CBH.

"The award of the Mingenew Q Type Capital Sealing project by CBH is particularly pleasing as it is the largest in a series of Hyparspace solutions for CBH," Broad added.
