CIMIC's Sedgman and CPB Contractors have won a $757 million crushing and conveying contract in Western Australia

Sedgman and CPB Contractors, in joint venture, have been selected by BHP to undertake the Western Ridge Crusher Project in Western Australia.

The project, which will generate revenue to CIMIC of $757 million, involves an end-to-end solution for design and construction of a new 30 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) primary crusher (separately procured by BHP) and a 12km overland conveyor, radial stacker and associated stockpiling systems, with a capacity of 30 mtpa.

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