One of the world’s leading international contractors, and the world’s largest contract miner, has extended one of its most lucrative mining contracts
CIMIC Group’s global mining services provider, Thiess, has announced that its A$300mn contract for Harum Energy’s Mahakam Sumber Jaya (MSJ) Coal mine in East Kalimantan, Indonesia, has been extended for a further four years.
The contract extension will run until March 2021 and is a further continuation of the strong successful 13-year mine development and operations at MSJ from CIMIC Group.
CIMIC Group Executive Officer Adolfo Valderas believes the extension is proof of the groups’ significant presence in the global mining industry.
“This extension reflects Thiess’ ability to continue growing our mining business globally, with the team delivering sustainable solutions,” he said.
This is a feeling shared by CIMIC Group Executive Mining and Mineral Processing and Thiess Manging Director, Douglas Thompson.
“I’m delighted to be extending our partnership with our long-term client, Harum Energy, building on a strong track record of performance at the same time.”
“I’m looking forward to our strong team in Indonesia continuing to deliver industry-leading safety and productivities, providing enduring value for our client into the future.”
