Sedgman, a subsidiary of CIMIC Group, has been awarded a three-year contract extension by Red Mountain Joint Venture (RMJV) to continue its operations at the RMJV coal handling and preparation plant (CHPP) in Queensland’s Bowen Basin.
Worth AUS$75 million, the contract continues Sedgman’s operation and maintenance of the CHPP until June 2019 with the potential for an additional two year extension after the initial period.
Established by Peabody Energy and BHP Mitsui Coal (BMC) the RMJV operates shared coal infrastructure for the adjacent Poitrel (BMC) and Millenium (Peabody Energy) mines.
The RMJV CHPP processes both metallurgical and PCI coals bound for export. Annual production from the facility now exceeds 8.1 million CHPP feed tones with a throughput of 1000 tph.
