The five-year contract builds on Thiess’ existing agreement with BHP and it also expands the company’s operations to include additional services to Mt Arthur’s southern end - the Ayredale and Roxburgh pits - as mine operator.
“We have a proud history in the region and working with BHP. We’re pleased to continue our work at Mt Arthur Coal’s southern operations and support local jobs, suppliers and businesses.
“We look forward to contributing to the success of the Mt Arthur Coal operation,” Thiess Managing Director Douglas Thompson said.
Approximately 300 permanent, locally-based positions are going to be supported by the works under this contract.
Earlier this year, Thiess was also awarded a $185 million contract for additional mining services at the Mt Arthur Coal operations.
