Decmil Australia awarded $75m BHP mine upgrade

Specialist engineering and construction firm Decmil Australia has been awarded a new $75 million contract with mining giant BHP Billiton.

Located in Western Australia, the contract is the first phase of a $105 million upgrade project to expand BHP’s iron ore operations at Mulla Mulla village, as well as the proposed South Flank project.

The contract follows Decmil’s successful delivery of other project works at major Western Australia iron ore sites, including a $13 million civil and initial works contract awarded in August.

“Decmil has achieved great success in delivering complex projects across the region, reinforcing our expertise and 40 years of experience as a sector contractor,” said Decmil’s managing director and CEO Scott Criddle.

“We look forward to further solidifying our growth path and long-standing relationship with BHP.”
