Adani has recently announced that $700 million of contracts have been signed for the construction of Adani’s Carmichael mine and rail project, in a win for regional communities.
Locally, Townsville’s Mendi Group has been awarded a $15M contract for civil engineering works, with Wagners delivering a $35M contract on the constructions and operation of the quarry to provide materials to support infrustructure. Adani has also announced contracts for Martinus Rail and Decmil on the Carmichael rail project, who are delivering $100M and $40M contracts from Rockhampton respectively.
In an update given at the end of January, Adani says the mine and rail construction is progressing to schedule with more than 200 workers on site at any given time, with support by staff at the Adani Mining headquarters in Townsville, the Rockhampton Business Centre and the Adani Australia office in Brisbane.
Works include expanding worker’s accommodation villages and constructing new sites, assembling equipment, the build and deliver of heavy machinery, building roads and dams, doing earthworks and delviering environment management systems. Thus far, Adani’s first 600 tonne mining excavator was completed on site and is ready to be used. In addition, the trucks to be used on site have been constructed in Mackay in works that support over 40 local jobs.
Over the coming weeks, the workforce is set to increase significantly with the completion of three temporary rail accommodation camps, adding an extra 1,200 beds. Adani has reported employment remains on track to deliver 1,500 direct jobs during construction and ramp up phase of the Mine and Rail Project.
