Infrastructure service provider Ventia has been awarded a contract to deliver comprehensive facility and asset management services to diversified miner Anglo American’s metallurgical coal operations in the Bowen basin, in Central Queensland, Australia.
The four-year contract is expected to generate total revenue of about A$216-million and includes an option to extend for an addition year, at Anglo American’s discretion, explains Ventia defence and social infrastructure group executive Derek Osborn.
He adds that the contract includes the provision of services to Anglo American’s Capcoal complex, Moranbah North, Grosvenor and Dawson mines, as well as the associated accommodation villages and company housing in the Middlemount, Moura and Moranbah regions, and the Middlemount Aerodrome.
Further, Ventia expects to employ more than 250 people as part of the contract, and will align with industry best-practice to deliver services including town and site maintenance, property management, grounds and gardens, pest control, aerodrome management, security and safety services, industrial cleaning services, village catering and accommodation, housekeeping, janitorial and town services.
“We are proud to have been awarded this facility and asset management services contract with Anglo American. We aim to help support the safety, health and wellbeing of everyone on site through our services.
“This will be enabled by our ability to harness technology and provide a tailor-made solution to support Anglo American’s facilities and assets. We will provide a strong focus on asset life-cycle management and our technology platform will help us achieve this,” Osborn concludes.
