Transfield Services (TSE) has been awarded two engineering design and construction contracts in the Pilbara, Western Australia, worth a total of A$100 million. The contracts, with Rio Tinto and Fortescue Metals Group, integrate the expertise of Transfield Services’ specialist engineering design subsidiary, ICD, with the Company’s construction capability.
The contracts are a one year, $65 million contract to design and construct Rio Tinto’s Parker Point fuels storage terminal in Dampier. The terminal, which receives fuel via a 1.8 kilometre jetty and distributes the fuel by rail, is part of Rio Tinto’s iron ore operations in the Pilbara.
A one year $35 million contract to design and construct diesel storage facilities and distribution infrastructure to support the development and operations of the Solomon Mine in the Pilbara.
