GR Engineering Services have been awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for Tellus Holdings’ Sandy Ridge waste facility, located 140km northwest of Kalgoorlie.
The Sandy Ridge project is a kaolin mining operation and includes a waste facility. The project received approval from the EPA earlier this month.
In a statement to the ASX, GR Engineering said the contract, which it estimates to be worth around $50 million, includes the EPC and commissioning of the waste cell infrastructure, access roads, raw water supply and other key infrastructure of the waste facility.
The work will be completed in two stages, with stage one expected to begin next month and include engineering, design and long lead procurement activities for the works.
Stage two is set to commence mid-year, subject to Tellus obtaining additional project approvals and licences from the government.
Geoff Jones, GR Engineering managing director, said the company was looking forward to continuing its involvement in the project.
“Delivery of the project will enable GR Engineering to leverage its skillset in an innovative manner and diversity its industry exposures in a familiar location,” Jones concluded.
