$7m coalfields contract out to tender
Moranbah project expected to generate 20 jobs
Wednesday 30 November 2016
Local businesses have just over a fortnight to put in a tender to secure the key work contract on a major civil project in Moranbah.
The Isaac Regional Council is looking for a top tier contractor to manage the construction of a $7 million refuse transfer station and landfill facility to replace the existing one which will be exhausted by next year.
The project is jointly funded by Council and the State Government and is part of the Moranbah Resource Recovery Centre Expansion and Improvement Project.
“This tender will deliver the key contractor responsible for the majority of the infrastructure works,” Mayor Anne Baker said.
“It’s a fantastic milestone; we’re proud to be moving the project to a stage where residents will see things happening on the ground.
Minister for Natural Resources and Mines Dr Anthony Lynham said the project would deliver business opportunities.
“The success of our $375 million Building our Regions program is in its collaborative approach with local government,” he said.
“The next Building our Regions project will be the new reservoir and other works at the Moranbah Water Treatment Plant, where State Government and council are contributing $5.3 million each.”
Tenders must be lodged no later than 10am AEST Friday, 16 December 2016. For details go here
