As part of the collaboration, the two will create a steering committee that will permit TNG to maintain control of the project, while Como manages critical project management and technical support. Como will also provide key personnel for those aspects.
TNG managing director Paul Burton said it is happy to partner with the experienced, skilled and highly capable Australian-based firm for Mount Peake’s key construction work.
“We already have some of the best names in the global construction and engineering sectors as part of our development team at Mount Peake, and we are very pleased to have Como as part of this Tier 1 group,” he said.
“Como Engineers have played an important role in the delivery of some highly successful mid-tier resource projects in Australia in recent years, notably some large projects in the strategic metals and gold sectors, and we are pleased to be able to draw on their skills and expertise as we move the project towards development.”
TNG’s extended team also includes SMS group and, as of last week, Clough Projects and McMahon Services, which will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services at the developing complex.
The 100%-owned Mount Peake project is north of Alice Springs and is expected to be a top 10 global producer.
