WestStar Industrial Limited and Adbri Limited have locked in a partnership under a new contract for the Kwinana Plant upgrade project.
WestStar’s subsidiary SIMPEC has been awarded a $105 million contract for works on Cockburn Cement Limited’s Kwinana cement plant upgrades. CCL is a subsidiary of Adbri Limited.
The scope of the operations will include grinding circuits, raw material storage and a reclamation system that will deliver cement products to the Western Australian market. The plans will have two new 100-ton-per-hour ball mill grinding circuits feeds into six 3,200-ton product silos with truck loading capabilities delivered.
SIMPEC managing director Mark Dimasi said the opportunity was welcomed by the company.
“The new contract demonstrates the company’s track record of delivering for its clients,” he said.
“We are pleased to secure this work and are committed to maintaining a long-standing relationship with CCL and the Adbri group.
“This is an opportunity to deliver such a high-profile local project.”
The SIMPEC team has been on site for around 10 months under a limited notice to proceed.
The upgrades at the Kiwana site will include the ability to receive and store bulk materials via the Fremantle Port Authority Kwinana Bulk Terminal directly onto a raw materials conveyor system and a fully enclosed storage shed.
Adbri Limited has said the works are consistent with the previously announced cost estimates and project schedule.
