GW Hyder scores several coal contracts
GW Hyder has been contracted to work at three significant east coast coal projects, providing a welcome fillip for the company’s freshly-minted resources team.
Moolarben Coal Complex.
The contracts follow GW Hyder’s push into Australia’s resources sector in April this year. The multi-national design firm Hyder bought NSW-based GW Engineers, to capitalise on its success in the resources sector.
Since then, the company has been busy. GW Hyder will design the surface materials handling for Stage 2 of the Moolarben Coal Complex near Mudgee, NSW.
The scope of work includes design of four new conveyors totalling 7km, a 500t capacity crushed coal surge bin and chain feeder, a truck dump hopper with apron feeder and primary crusher, and one new and one relocated rejects bin.
In addition, GW Hyder will perform a pre-feasibility study for Xstrata Coal at its coal handling plant in Oaky Creek, in the Bowen Basin.
GW Hyder will also provide detailed design of an emergency clean coal stockpile reclaim system for Coal and Allied’s Mount Thorley mine near Singleton, NSW.
Managing director of GW Hyder’s resources division, Paul Davis, said the contracts should stand the company in good stead for future coal contracts.
