ECM is pleased to announce the addition of the Roy Hill and Sino Iron projects to its growing portfolio of major resources sector projects. These two new projects, along with LNG/CSG sector success in Queensland, add $160+m to the company's FY15 order book and underpin ECM's diversification strategy.
"We are more than happy to be judged by our performance and these recent project wins go a long way to further strengthen our reputation in the delivery of major resource and energy projects," ECM Managing Director and CEO Simon Higgins said.
Contracted to Thiess, ECM will provide Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) works to construct the mine process plant facilities for the Roy Hill iron ore mine in Western Australia, 280km south of Port Hedland.
"Our collaboration with Thiess builds on the strong relationship we have forged through the delivery of upstream E&I construction services on the Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) project over the past 18 months," Mr Higgins said.
The company has also recently signed a contract with Sino Iron Pty Ltd to execute a Dewatering Building scope at the strategically significant magnetite operation located at Cape Preston.
"Sino Iron has been a longer-term target for ECM. We've developed a solid relationship over the past year and look forward to bringing ECM's service quality to Sino Iron in the coming months."
The Roy Hill and Sino Iron projects add to a growing FY15 project portfolio for ECM which secured a further $30m in an overall $200m program of works on the QCLNG project.
ECM's Queensland client base has also grown to encompass major international engineering group Bechtel which has contracted ECM to provide E&I works and Instrument testing at the Australia Pacific LNG project (APLNG) on Curtis Island.
"Our company's success can be attributed to the continued focus on performance - delivering what we promise to our clients on time and within budget," Mr Higgins said.
"People are of particular importance to our business - internally and externally. Our contracts directly reflect the significance we place on maintaining long term relationships with our key customers," Mr Higgins said.
"Notably, ECM's low turnover in our workforce means we retain the talent required to build a solid and reliable brand."
