VDM Group Ltd (VMG) is pleased to announce it has been awarded two significant contracts valued at $30.6 million by BHP Billiton. The two new contracts have taken the total value of work won by VDM this financial year to more than $130 million. VDM Construction has been awarded a variation to its contract for BHP Billiton Iron Ore on its Central REG Camp project near the Area C minesite. The variation is for the main installation of the Central REG Accommodation Camp and is valued at $21.4 million. Work will commence immediately and is due for completion in August 2012. A second contract has also been awarded to VDM Construction by BHP Billiton Petroleum Pty Ltd for the design and construction of administration control and warehouse maintenance buildings at its Macedon Gas Project, located near Onslow in WA. Work on the project will commence immediately and is due for completion in July 2012.
VDM Group Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Broad, said the contracts were further evidence that the industry-wide hiatus in the award of new contracts was abating. “It is very pleasing to be awarded these projects and we are confident that VDM is close to the formal awards on several other projects,” Mr Broad said.
