Rio Tinto has announced the winning contractor for the provision of services on its Pilbara rail network in Western Australia.
Engineering company, Monadelphous, has been awarded the contract, valued at approximately $60 million.
Monadelphous’ Maintenance and Industrial Services division will provide maintenance services across three packages of work under a three-year contract, with a further two three-year extension options.
The scope of work includes general track maintenance and renewals services on the coastal component of the rail network, resurfacing services across Rio Tinto’s entire rail network and rail workshop services.
Monadelphous Managing Director, Rob Velletri, said the contract built on the company’s long-term relationship with Rio Tinto in the delivery of construction and maintenance services, and further broadened Monadelphous’ service offering.
“The contract is a significant strategic milestone for our business,” Mr Velletri said.
“This work will also provide us with the opportunity to strengthen and build on our existing capabilities in the rail sector.”
Monadelphous currently undertakes rail work across the Pilbara region including mechanical repair, abrasive blasting, cleaning and relining of carbon steel ore wagons and the provision of commissioning services for new ore wagons.
