Property and construction group Pindan has secured a new contract to undertake works on a US$2.6 billion Iron Bridge Magnetite Project (Project) in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.

The work is being carried out for Fortescue Metals Group Ltd (Fortescue) subsidiary FMG Magnetite Pty Ltd and joint venture partner Formosa Steel IB Pty Ltd.

Pindan has been engaged to design, supply and install a number of office buildings, as well as delivering associated infrastructure, required at Fortescue’s Herb Elliot Port facility in Port Hedland as part of the overall development of the new magnetite ore processing facility, which lies 145 kilometers south of Port Hedland.

Tony Gerber, managing director Pindan Build, said the group was pleased it could build on its presence in the Pilbara with the awarding of the $3.4 million contract.

“We’ll be handling the delivery of office and meeting buildings, a crib building, permit office and electrical technician’s office, amongst others, within active areas of the Port,” he said.

“Our teams will be on-site for about nine weeks, with works due to be finished in October this year.

“We’re excited about this win and look forward to further contributing to this important WA project as it unfolds over the next two years.” 

Fortescue’s Iron Bridge Magnetite Project – reportedly set to create approximately 3,000 jobs during construction and 900 full-time operational positions – will deliver a 67% Fe magnetite concentrate product with the first ore on ship scheduled for mid-2022.
