Sandvik signs major project order in Australia


Sandvik Mining and Construction has signed a major contract with Boral, an international building and construction materials supplier in Australia. The order includes design, supply, installation and commissioning of a new quarry plant for Boral’s Peppertree site in New South Wales.

The value of the contract is close to US$73.7 million. The project started in the September quarter of 2011 and is expected to end in the September quarter of 2013.

The primary purpose of the project is to provide new production and dispatch capability for the supply of coarse and fine aggregates. This material will be used in pre-mixed concrete, concrete products and asphalt production in the greater Sydney region. Sandvik is to supply a full range of screening, crushing and train dispatch equipment.

Thomas Schulz, president of construction at Sandvik, said: "To be awarded this major order clearly demonstrates the strength of Sandvik Mining and Construction’s equipment in Australia and our ability to provide the best solutions to overcome complicated process problems. The environmental, health and safety (EHS) aspects of the plant have been critical issues for Boral, and they have nominated us for this order because of the safety features incorporated in our design.”
