Integrated engineering services company, Norfolk Group Limited (NFK), has been awarded two new contracts at major resources projects in Western Australia and Queensland. Norfolk’s electrical and communications division, O’Donnell Griffin, has won a contract worth approximately $37 million for works relating to a major underground minerals project in the Kimberley in Western Australia. It has also recently been awarded a $19 million contract for works at an expansion of an existing coal mine in Queensland’s Bowen Basin. The contract wins are in line with Norfolk’s strategy to focus on key growth sectors of the economy and to build on O’Donnell Griffin’s significant capabilities in the resources sector.
Glenn Wallace, Managing Director of Norfolk Group, said: “These new contract awards are a strong endorsement of Norfolk’s ability to deliver specialised services on significant, large-scale resources projects. “O’Donnell Griffin has recognised expertise and a proven track-record for implementing works on a range of major mining projects around the country and these wins reinforce that reputation.”
For the Queensland coal mine project, O’Donnell Griffin will undertake the supply, construction, installation and commissioning of electrical and instrumentation, civil, and structural and mechanical works. It will involve up to 60 specialised technicians, including project management staff, High Voltage / Low Voltage (HV/LV) electricians, civil earthworks operators, and structural and mechanical fitters. The works will commence during August 2011 and will continue for approximately 10 months. The contract at the Western Australia minerals project involves electrical and instrumentation works for the construction and commissioning of underground crushing, conveying and dewatering facilities, together with associated workshops and services infrastructure.
