Construction company Whittens has signed a $25 million contract with NRW Holdings for concrete works at the Roy Hill iron ore project in the Pilbara.
The scope of works includes three run of mine walls and the coarse ore stockpile tunnels and vaults with a combined total of about 16,000 cubic metres of concrete.
Director Tyron Whitten said the company was excited to announce the contract, which reinforced the long standing relationship Whittens had developed with NRW and expanded the company's presence at Roy Hill.
"We are delighted to be working with NRW again, with whom we most recently collaborated on the Brockman 4 project," he said.
"This upcoming project will require a workforce of about 90 people at its peak and we anticipate it will take around seven months to complete."
Whittens are currently managing several other projects around Australia including a $50 million concrete construction contract at Roy Hill for BGC and a $15.5 million contract at the Boggabri Coal Handling and Processing Plant in NSW for the Thiess Sedgman JV.
