Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers are set to manage the final equipment dispersal from the Forrestfield-Airport link project in Western Australia.

Held on Tuesday, 20 September 2022, more than 900 assets expected to be sold at the final Salini Impregilo and NRW Joint Venture (SI-NRW JV) auction.

The items used on the 1.86 billion dollar Forrestfield-Airport Link will be managed by Ritchie Bros., leaders in asset disposition.

Boasting a history with Since May 2021, Ritchie Bros. have held eight auctions and dispersed over 881 assets for lead contractor SI-NRW JV.

Ritchie Bros. has plans to utilise its multi-channel disposition solutions to dispose of the remaining fleet of construction equipment and other materials used by SI-NRW JV. The inventory will be marketed to the company’s unrivalled network of both local and global buyers.

SI-NRW JV assets have previously been sold through Ritchie Bros. platform IronPlanet.

IronPlanet has a strong track record of facilitating online transactions for equipment owners, with over 460 items sold in 2022 from Australia alone.

For SI-NRW JV, Ritchie Bros. has created a dedicated storefront, with the equipment available for review 24/7 by interested bidders and buyers globally.

All assets appear on a purpose-built webpage created specifically for SI-NRW JV where bidders can view a selection of pictures, in depth information, and then decide on placing a bid.

Items have been sold via monthly auctions, with the final auction scheduled for 20th September.

Cody Irvine, Ritchie Bros. territory manager spoke on the finalisation of the upcoming auction.

“Ritchie Bros. will manage the final sale of assets on September 20th. Machinery includes excavators, all-terrain cranes, trucks, wheel loaders, skid steers, and industrial support and workshop items,” Irvine said.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Salini Impregilo and NRW for the past two years. Our contract with SI-NRW has really helped establish our presence in Western Australia and our new site in Muchea.”

The Forrestfield-Airport Link, a new 8.5 km rail service covering Perth’s eastern suburbs, will open to the public on Sunday October 9.
