UGL awarded more than $600M worth of contracts

UGL has been awarded over $600 million worth of lithium and energy contracts for works in Western Australia.

As part of these works, UGL will oversee the provision of construction services at a lithium hydroxide plant near Bunbury, Western Australia for Albemarle, which will generate revenue for UGL of over $300 million.

This forms part of Albemarle’s plan to expand, by constructing two additional processing trains at its Kemerton plant, to increase production to up to 100,000 metric tonnes per annum of lithium hydroxide, supporting the manufacturing of an estimated 2.4 million electric vehicles annually.

The second $300M

Four other contracts, valued at $300 million, include a variety of services for different project stakeholders.

This includes the provision of electrical, instrumentation, mechanical and access services for aluminium producer Alcoa’s bauxite and alumina WA operations.

The next contract will consist of the provision of brownfields implementation services for an energy provider through a joint venture contract which includes planning and execution of mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, access, insulation, coatings and fire protection.

UGL will also be responsible for front-line and campaign maintenance, brownfield execution scopes and turnaround events at energy company Chevron Australia-operated facilities.

The fourth contract will include asset preservation services at an energy provider’s facilities, through IAS Group – UGL’s wholly owned specialist provider of asset life extension and critical repair solutions in the resources, infrastructure and industrial sectors.

CIMIC Group Executive Chairman Juan Santamaria said the contracts reflect the company’s commitment to developing energy infrastructure.

“We are proud to grow our presence in Western Australia and to play a part in expanding high tech infrastructure and lithium refining in Australia, by contributing to the construction of one of the world’s largest lithium production facilities,” he said.
