Mondium has been awarded a major contract, valued at approximately $400 million, with Rio Tinto for the design and construction of the Western Turner Syncline Phase 2 (WTS2) mine, located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Mondium will carry out all engineering and design, procurement and site construction works associated with the WTS2 development, including the process plant, overland conveyor and non-process infrastructure.

Monadelphous and Lycopodium recognised the synergistic benefits they could bring by providing an end to end EPC delivery business for the resources sector in Australia.

Mondium Managing Director, Andrew Carnie, said that the award is a major strategic milestone for the Company in its growth strategy.

“Mondium has been working hard to execute projects successfully and prove our capability. We are thrilled to be making great strides in our growth strategy and to have secured this significant contract with Rio Tinto,” said Mr Carnie.

The work will commence in the first quarter of 2020 and is expected to be completed in 2021. Mondium will work closely with Rio Tinto to provide local employment and business opportunities in the region.
