CIMIC Group’s mining services provider, Thiess, has secured two contracts with the BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) worth a combined $440 million.

The two contracts are based at BMA’s Caval Ridge and Peak Downs coal mines in the Bowen Basin of Queensland.

Over three years, Thiess will deliver mining services for specific components of work which includes the services required for Caval Ridge Southern Circuit (CRSC).  

CIMIC Chief Executive Office Adolfo Valderas said: “This contract reflects Thiess’ ongoing commitment to optimising value for its clients, through flexible mining solutions.

Douglas Thompson, Thiess Managing Director, said the company was proud to be partnering with BMA, building on its long-standing history in Central Queensland.

“This contract will enable Thiess to deliver productivity efficiencies, working with BMA to bring additional job opportunities to the region,” Thompson said.

BMA approved a $US204 million investment in the Southern Circuit project in April.

The BMA project involves an 11km overland conveyor system which will transport coal from the Peak Downs mine to the coal handling preparation plant near the Caval Ridge mine.

CIMIC Chief Executive Officer Adolfo Valderas added: “This contract reflects Thiess’ ongoing commitment to optimising value for its clients, through flexible mining solutions.”

Work at Caval Ridge will commence in 2017.
