ECM's Queensland client base has grown to encompass major international engineering group, Bechtel, which has contracted ECM to provide Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) testing at the Australia Pacific LNG project (APLNG) on Curtis Island.

ECM's downstream APLNG scope of works follows a further contract through Thiess with a combined value of $50m.  E&I works will be executed on the Jordan and Poppy field compressor stations on the upstream portion of the Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) project in Gladstone.  To date, this brings ECM's overall QCLNG program of works to approximately $200m.

"We have been more than happy to be judged by our performance over the years and our recent contract wins go a long way to further strengthen ECM's reputation to successfully deliver major resource and energy projects, "ECM General Manager, Ian Hewitt said.

"Winning work with Bechtel is a great endorsement for ECM and complements our CSG credentials in Queensland and our LNG capability in WA (Wheatstone).  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 Hewitt said.

"People are of particular importance to our busiiness, both internally and externally. Our contracts directly reflect the significance we place on maintaining long term relationships with our key customers which now includes Bechtel," Mr Hewitt said.

ECM has also added the Roy Hill and Sino Iron projects in Western Australia to its growing portfolio of major resources sector projects.  Combined, recently secured contracts add $160+m to the ECM FY15 balance sheet and underpin the company's ongoing diversification strategy.

Contracted to Thiess, ECM will provide 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 QCLNG project over the past 18 months," Mr Hewitt said.

"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."
