Australian engineering company Monadelphous Group has secured a five-year crane services contract with Fortescue Metals Group. The deal is worth around AU$150 million (US$ 117 million).
Monadelphous will provide crane services supporting general repairs, maintenance and shutdown activities to Fortescue’s Solomon and Eliwana operations in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, the company said.
The company has provided crane services to Fortescue’s Solomon operations since 2017 and in 2020 extended its services to Eliwana.
“We are pleased to have secured this long-term contract with Fortescue and look forward to continuing to support their operations in the Pilbara with the ongoing provision of quality crane services,” commented Rob Velletri, Monadelphous managing director.
