Downer EDI says its Asset Services business had recently been awarded a number of contracts in the power generation, oil and gas, and industrial sectors with a combined value of approximately A$324 million.
In the industrials market, Downer has been awarded a two-year contract with BHP for the delivery of sustaining capital projects across their Western Australia Iron Ore (WAIO) sites. The services cover sustaining capital projects in mechanical, electrical and rail.
WAIO is an integrated system of four processing hubs and five mines connected by more than 1,000 km of rail infrastructure and port facilities in the Pilbara region of northern Western Australia. At each processing hub – Newman, Yandi, Mining Area C and Jimblebar – the ore is crushed, beneficiated (where necessary) and blended to create high-grade haematite lump and fines products. Iron ore products are then transported along the Port Hedland–Newman Rail Line to the Finucane Island and Nelson Point port facilities at Port Hedland.
Downer also announced a site services contract with Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy and Fertilisers group for the provision of electrical maintenance and shutdowns over the Western Australian and Northern Territory operations.
The Chief Executive Officer of Downer, Grant Fenn, said the contract wins demonstrate Downer’s position as an industry leader in the delivery of major maintenance and specialist services to customers in the resources, energy and industrial sectors.
“Through our Asset Services business, Downer has an excellent track record of delivering installation, maintenance and shutdown services to our customers across Australia,” Fenn said.“These new and extended contracts are a strong endorsement of our capability as an asset management partner of choice and demonstrates the strength of our ongoing, long-term relationships with our customers.”
