A civil works contract for Rio Tinto’s new iron ore mine in Western Australia, Koodaideri, has been awarded to two local companies.
ACCIONA’s Australian subsidiary, Coleman Rail, won the contract in partnership with Western Australian engineering and construction company, Clough.
The contract is set to create 200 new jobs and involve site establishment, rail formation and drainage earthworks, rail maintenance track, bridge construction, culverts and drainage structures, and level crossings.
The Koodaideri Project is a greenfield mine development for Rio Tinto Iron Ore in the East Pilbara mining region. The Koodaideri mine will initially be developed with an annual capacity of 43 million tonnes.
To allow the transportation of iron ore product to either Dampier or Cape Lambert, the project requires a 170km rail spur to connect the Koodaideri mine to the existing Rio Tinto Iron Ore rail network, just south of Lyre Siding at Numbat.
ACCIONA Geotech Managing Director, Bede Noonan, said, “We are proud to be working for Rio Tinto as part of the ACCIONA Clough Joint Venture, supporting the development of its most technologically-advanced mine, Koodaideri.
“This builds on our momentum in Western Australia following a recent contract to construct a new waste-to-energy plant at Kwinana, and our recent completion of the Ashton Avenue Bridge in Claremont.
“We anticipate this new project will contribute to the development of specialist skills in the Western Australian construction industry, creating local opportunities in addition to being a great project for our team.”
