“NRW is delighted to be awarded this contract at Olympic Dam following the successful acquisition of the BGC Contracting business. NRW has a long history with BHP in their Iron Ore, Coal and Nickel divisions but this contract marks the first project for the Copper operations. I look forward to the safe and successful execution of the works,” NRW CEO and Managing Director Jules Pemberton said.
Works will commence in late March and will take up to 37 weeks to complete. Including subcontractors, this project is expected to have a workforce of up to 140 people.
