Under a $184 million contract, CPB Contractors and Sedgman’s scope of works will include design, procurement, construction as well as commissioning of a Coal Handling and Preparation Plant (CHPP) at the Olive Downs site.
“The Olive Downs Coking Coal Project is an exciting, long term development in the Queensland Bowen Basin and we are pleased to be working closely with Pembroke Resources to deliver value for the project,” Sedgman Managing Director Grant Fraser said.
CPB Contractors managing Director Juan Santamaria added: “The Olive Downs Coking Coal Project will draw on the long experience of CPB Contractors in resource infrastructure and our strong ongoing project involvement in regional Queensland, including more than 15 years working with Sedgman in the Bowen Basin delivering coal handling plants and mine infrastructure.”

In September 2018, Pembroke Resources released the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the $1 billion Olive Downs Coking Coal Project for public consultation.
The construction of the project is expected to create up to 500 jobs a year. Once the Olive Downs project is up and operational, it is also anticipated to support up to 1,000 jobs and produce approximately 15Mtpa of coal annually.
The entire Olive Downs Coking Coal Project will comprise of:
An open-cut metallurgical coal mine
A coal handling and preparation plant
An 18-kilometre rail spur and on site rail loop
Raw water access pipeline that will connect to the Eungella pipeline network
Private access roads
Electricity transmission line
Wastewater and sewage treatment plants
Works on the CHPP is expected to be completed in 2020.
