A prominent construction company has been tasked with an ambitious bulk fuel storage build in the Pilbara.

Decmil has announced it was recently awarded a circa $41 million contract to undertake non-mining process infrastructure works at the $2.6 billion USD Iron Bridge Magnetite Project in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Construction is scheduled to commence in September 2020 and is expected to be completed by May 2021.

Under the scope of works, Decmil will design and construct a bulk fuel storage and transfer facility, a mobile maintenance complex, including workshops, warehouses and related satellite office and site services facilities.

The bulk fuel storage and transfer facility will, according to Decmil, provide a refuelling facility for heavy vehicles, while the mobile maintenance complex includes a heavy vehicle workshop that incorporates locker storage, tool storage and an administration area.

Decmil CEO, Dickie Dique, said the company was delighted to secure works at one of Australia’s most significant mining projects.

“Crucially, this award at such a major project enhances our credentials to potentially secure more work in a resurgent iron ore and magnetite sector,” said Dique.

The Iron Bridge Magnetite Project is an unincorporated joint venture between Fortescue Metals Group subsidiary FMG Iron Bridge Ltd and Formosa Steel IB.

The project is anticipated to deliver first concentrate product by mid-2022.
