NRW Holdings Limited (ASX: NWH) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary RCR Mining Technologies has been awarded a new contract for the design and construction of a Primary Crushing Plant (PCP) and Overland Conveyor (OLC) for the Queens Project at the Solomon Hub for Fortescue Metals Group (ASX: FMG). The contract has a combined value of approximately $80 million.
After successful delivery of the Hopper 9 Crushing Facility at Fortescue’s Cloudbreak mine earlier in 2020 this award is strategically significant for the business as it showcases our engineering led delivery of innovative solutions. RCR is partnering with Primero Group who will provide engineering support and construction services. Civil construction and earthworks will be undertaken by NRW’s Civil division.
NRW subsidiaries, RCR Mining Technologies and DIAB Engineering, together with Primero, bring a very strong design, manufacture and construction capability to this project with an engineering-led philosophy of solutions and innovation.
We look forward to working with the Fortescue team to deliver another Crushing and Conveying project.
NRW CEO Jules Pemberton said: “The Integration of our new Minerals Energy and Technology team of RCR Mining Technologies, DIAB and Primero on a project such as this, combined with the NRW Civil and Mining team all focused on end-to-end delivery, is another milestone for the business”.
