PRESS RELEASE: Simpec's scope of work is to design, supply, construct, test, commission and deconstruct the electrical and communications systems for the 600-room construction camp project over a period of 3-4 months.

The camp will be used in the development project at the West Angelas mine to build deposits C and D. Following the completion of the mine development project, Simpec will return to site and deconstruct the camp's electrical and communications systems.

Simpec said the award builds on the portfolio of camp work packages it has successfully undertaken, specifically the camp works completed at Iluka Resources' Cataby iron sands project, 150km north of Perth, Western Australia.

Simpec managing director Mark Dimasi said: "This is a tribute to our team resulting from our efforts at the Cataby project. What a commendable achievement to secure a project with ATCO Structures and Logistics for the Rio Tinto West Angelas Mine site, further enhancing our exposure to camp construction works."

The A$4-million-(US$3 million)-contract work will commence early 2019.
