SIMPEC has been awarded an ~$5M contract at Fortescue’s Eliwana Mine and Rail Project. Please see the announcement:

"To see the fruits of this concerted effort during the Fortescue Eliwana tender phase is very rewarding for the team. This Tier 1 project award is a significant achievement for SIMPEC allowing the company to construct alongside some of Australia’s biggest construction companies. This is another commendable accomplishment with ATCO, well-done team." - Mark Dimasi


SIMPEC’s electrical, communications and dry fire scope of work is to design, supply, construct, test, commission the electrical, communications and dry fire systems of the 800-room mine camp. The Camp will be delivered over a 9-month duration. The Camp will be used in the major development project at Fortescue’s new Eliwana Mine. To be involved in the construction of a key element of the Eliwana mine development for Fortescue is a significant milestone for SIMPEC. This is SIMPEC’s first contract on a Fortescue Project.

The award builds on the portfolio of camp work packages successfully undertaken by SIMPEC, specifically the camp works completed at Iluka Resources’ Cataby Iron Sands Project and  for Rio Tinto's West Angelas Project.
