Sedgman and CPB Contractors, both members of CIMIC Group, have been awarded the contract by BHP for the Western Ridge Crusher Project in Western Australia.

The joint venture will deliver an end-to-end solution for the design and construction of a new 30 Mtpa primary crusher, separately procured by BHP, as well as a 12-kilometre overland conveyor, radial stacker and associated stockpiling systems, with a capacity of 30 Mtpa. The project is anticipated to generate revenue of $757 million for CIMIC Group.

Over the past 12 months, Sedgman and CPB Contractors have worked with BHP to progress engineering, design and long-lead procurement for the project. The team will now commence construction at the end of May 2024.

Juan Santamaria, executive chairman of CIMIC Group, said: “The unique combination of Sedgman’s mineral processing experience and CPB Contractors’ construction expertise provides our clients with the certainty of a proven track record in the delivery of major process infrastructure in the mining industry.”

Grant Fraser, managing director of Sedgman, expressed his enthusiasm for the longstanding relationship with BHP and the extensive collaboration with CPB Contractors in delivering value for the Western Ridge Crusher Project. “It is an exciting, long-term development in Western Australia,” said Fraser.
