Clough picks up old Forge contract
Clough picks up old Forge contract

Clough has taken over a Rio Tinto Pilbara power station contract lost by Forge Group when it collapsed earlier this year.

The contractor said it would be providing engineering, design and procurement services for the Cape Lambert project.

The 12-month job puts Clough in the box seat to perform the more lucrative construction work on the power station.

Forge's power subsidiary in 2012 won a $280 million engineering and construction contract to build the facility. Clough had provided some engineering services to Forge for the project.

The $800 million collapse of Forge in February was blamed on massive budget blowouts at two other power stations, including Rio Tinto's West Angelas station in the Pilbara. Clough was Forge's biggest shareholder before selling the stake last year.
