Sedgman Lands Expansion Bid for Australia's Baralaba.

Officials at resource services firm Sedgman Ltd. have announced receiving a $32 million contract to expand Cockatoo Coal Ltd.'s Baralaba mine, near Baralaba Township in Australia's lower Bowen Basin. The project is being executed in a design and procurement component of $16.9 million followed by a $15.1 million construction phase.

"The award followed a competitive process to demonstrate our innovative approach that would realize value for Cockatoo, an important player in Australian coal," said Sedgman CEO Peter Watson. With the first phase under way, final approval is pending Q4 2014 with upgraded facilities slated for Q3 2015 completion.

The upgrade, according to company representatives, will increase mine capacity to stack, reclaim and rail products from 1 million tons per year (mtpy) to 3.5 million mtpy; the scope of work, meanwhile, constitutes detail design, supply, fabrication, construction and commissioning of the train load out at the Moura stockyard facility.
