Centrals Awarded Roy Hill Rail Bridges Contract by Samsung C&T
Centrals is pleased to announce the recent award of a subcontract with Samsung C&T for the construction of the rail bridges for the Roy Hill Iron Ore Project.
Centrals is a leading provider of civil and remedial construction contracting services to the mining & resources, energy, infrastructure, marine, manufacturing, industrial and commercial sectors. Centrals Director, Richard Eden said “We are excited about the opportunity to work with Samsung C&T on such a significant WA resources project”.
The subcontract, valued in excess of $100M, is for the construction of eleven bridges along the proposed 340km rail line from the Roy Hill Mine to their port and stockyard facilities near Port Hedland. This includes eight bridges over waterways, two bridges of existing rail lines and one bridge over an existing haul road. The contract is scheduled to commence in October 2013 and complete in December 2014 and will employ more than 160 personnel at its peak. Centrals plan to self-execute the majority of works but are pleased to be working again with their long term indigenous contracting partner, Pilbara Logistics, who will be providing a number of support services to the project.
“The Centrals team has worked hard over the last 3-4 years to grow and transform the company into a major civil construction and remedial services contractor. In our view, this contract award is a significant endorsement of our capabilities and capacity to execute larger scale construction projects for our clients” said Mr. Eden.
