ECM was announced winner of the Industrial Large Project Excellence Award for the Ruby Jo Central Processing Plant (CPP) and Field Compression Processing Plant (FCS) at the 2014 National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA) awards held in Melbourne on 27 November.

The Queensland Curtis LNG Upstream Works Project is situated in the Surat Basin of Southern Queensland. The project included the supply, installation and certification of electrical, instrumentation and communication works for the Ruby Jo Field, Compression Station or FCS and Central Processing Plant - the CPP. Once fully commissioned, the project will produce enough gas to sustain half a million homes a day.

ECM CEO and Managing Director, Simon Higgins said, "To be recognised for our team's hard work on this project by the peak industry body is exceptional and a testament to the quality of workmanship and project delivery that ECM stakes its reputation on. Our team overcame extremely challenging weather conditions to safely complete the project on time and within budget."

"Over the past two years, ECM has received numerous state and national excellence awards for safety and project delivery, clearly demonstrating our commitment to providing consistent, high quality construction and maintenance services to our national client base" Mr Higgins said.

ECM worked in excess of 230,000 man-hours to successfully complete the Ruby Jo Central Processing Plant and FCS, and has now completed close to 1,000,000 hours to date acrosss the QCLNG Upstream Program.
