Adani Mining CEO transition

As construction of the Carmichael Project is well underway and as the business prepares for operation, Adani Mining Pty Ltd announced changes to its leadership this week.

CEO Lucas Dow has advised the Adani Mining Board of his decision to step down from the role of CEO, he will however take up the role of Director of the Board of Adani Mining Pty Ltd.

Current Project Director David Boshoff will take on the role of CEO, based in Townsville.

Lucas joined Adani Australia in April 2018 and under his leadership Adani Mining reshaped the Carmichael Project, achieved final approvals and completed the first critical 12-months of construction.  He will continue to be involved in the business in a non-executive capacity and remains an integral part of the Adani Australia team.

David joined Adani Mining in November 2019 and in his role as Project Director has led the ramp up of construction activities, built a strong, capable project team that is focused on safety, and introduced new systems to ensure the project remains on track.

We’re looking forward to introducing David to more of you over the coming weeks and months as we countdown to safely deliver first coal in 2021.

Mackay the winner as Adani awards contract to build Coal Handling Plant

This week we announced that Mackay-based G&S Engineering, a wholly owned subsidiary of DRA Global Ltd will build our Coal Handling Plant at the Carmichael Mine in Central Queensland.

G&S is a leading provider of services to the Australian resources sector, having completed similar work for other coal mines across the country.

Mackay is renowned for its well-established mining services industry and we’re thrilled to have another regional contractor on board.

The contract is expected to create 200 jobs and deliver an economic boost to Mackay and regional Queensland more broadly at time it is needed most.

We have now awarded more than $1 billion in contracts and have more than 700 people engaged on the project, meaning we are well on track to create 1,500 direct and 6,750 indirect jobs.

Caley Valley Wetlands Monitoring Progress Report

The Department of Environment and Science recently released its monitoring progress report of the Caley Valley Wetlands, which is adjacent to our Abbot Point Terminal near Bowen, and found that the Wetlands is in good health, with results confirming there are no signs of environmental harm to the environmental values of the Wetland. The terminal has been in operation for more than 35 years exporting coal from major Bowen Basin miners.

Following Cyclone Debbie in 2017, Abbot Point Operations brought forward a program of significant water infrastructure projects to improve our environmental management outcomes.

More than $25.5 million in upgrades have either been implemented, or are in the works, including new  water monitoring infrastructure to allow us to measure water quality in real-time, increasing the volume of water storage ponds, and infrastructure to improve water quality within the terminal’s storage ponds – this includes a fully automated flocculant dosing plant.

In addition, we have completed an upgrade of terminal concrete bunding, catchment diversions around the terminal including new piping and pump facilities to cater for extreme rainfall events, as well as an early works program on the redesign of the remaining water management infrastructure at other authorised release points.

Further upgrades will be delivered by 2021 and we’re pleased to see this work is already helping us to deliver positive environmental outcomes for the Caley Valley Wetlands.
