PRESS RELEASE: Sedgman has been awarded contracts by Resource Generation's subsidiary Ledjadja Coal for the design, engineering, procurement and construction, as well as the ongoing operations and maintenance, at the Boikarabelo Coal Handling and Preparation Plant (CHPP) in South Africa.

CIMIC Group CEO Michael Wright said: "This contract is a valued addition to our mineral processing portfolio. It reflects Sedgman's world-leading expertise in the coal sector and its established success in delivering projects in mining jurisdictions globally."

Sedgman managing director Grant Fraser said: "We are pleased to be able to deliver our whole-of-life approach to this important project - building the processing plant and providing ongoing operational involvement for Resource Generation, and its South African subsidiary Ledjadja Coal."

The project comprises design, civil, structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and commissioning works, as well as operations and maintenance, for the 15-million-tonnes-per-annum CHPP located in the Waterberg Coal fields in the Limpopo province, South Africa.

Work is expected to commence once the Boikarabelo project funding has been finalised, with debt providers currently in the final process of credit approvals.
