Adani contract awards: It has been an exciting week for our team, with the news we have now awarded our largest construction contract for the Carmichael Project to date to Queensland-based BMD, taking the total value of contracts awarded to over $1 billion.

BMD had been awarded a $350M+ contract to deliver civil construction works for the Carmichael Rail Network, delivering jobs and economic stimulus to regional Queensland at a time it is needed most.

This week we also announced we had awarded a $9M+ contract to Rockhampton-based Stresscrete to manufacture girders and supply concrete box culverts for the Carmichael Rail project.

While some COVID-19 restrictions have now eased, we are continuing to follow all advice from Queensland Health and the Federal Government and doing all we can to keep our people and the community safe.

Health and safety remains our first priority and we have adapted our operations in order to keep people in work and continue to provide new job opportunities. We remain on track to create more than 1,500 direct jobs during the construction and ramp up of our project and some further 6,750 indirect jobs.

The $350M+ civil construction contract will see BMD deliver civil works for construction of the Carmichael Rail Network.

BMD is a proud Queensland company and we’re thrilled to have them on board and delivering the largest package of works awarded on our project. As many people will already know BMD has operated in North Queensland for more than 25 years, with Townsville forming their regional base for delivery of this contract.

The civil construction of the rail network is being delivered in two parts – BMD will complete one section and we recently announced Martinus as our other civil rail contract partner.

The civil components of the BMD contract include the delivery of earthworks, drainage, bridges, rail camp construction and associated road upgrades and importantly, this work package will deliver approximately 600 jobs, which is big win for regional Queensland workers.

We’re very pleased to also add Stresscrete to our list of Rockhampton-based contractors. This will provide a significant injection into the local economy and it’s not just the direct jobs that are important, but the indirect jobs that are supported as a result of these sorts of contracts and the broader impact such work has on regional communities and families.

Stresscrete will produce girders locally in Rocky which will then be used throughout the rail corridor for the bridges that will be built over permanent waterways.
