CIMIC Group’s Australasian construction company CPB Contractors has been selected to deliver the BHP Nickel West Mt Keith Debottlenecking Project’s Structural Mechanical, Piping, Electrical & Instrumentation (SMPE&I) work package near Leinster, Western Australia.

The project is expected to generate revenue of approximately $105 million for CPB Contractors, while providing the Nickel West business additional grinding capacity to meet the processing requirements of ore with different characteristics.

“CPB Contractors has the experience necessary to safely and reliably deliver resources infrastructure projects right across Western Australia,” said CIMIC Group Executive Chairman Juan Santamaria. “We are pleased to be selected to deliver another productivity enhancing project.”

CPB Contractors Managing Director Jason Spears said: “We’ll be drawing on our extensive resources industry experience to ensure that the required equipment and materials are available at Mt Keith. Our teams are looking forward to safely delivering this important project.”

BHP has also chosen CPB Contractors to deliver other recent resources projects in Western Australia, including a camp expansion at the Mt Keith Mine Site, SMPE&I works for the Port Debottlenecking Project 1, and the Wind Fences (Air Quality) construction and installation works at Port Hedland.

Works at Mt Keith will commence this year and are scheduled for completion in 2024.
