We have been closely involved throughout the Byerwen project from the engineering, procurement and construction of the stockpile, train load-out and CHPP. We are pleased to be completing the cycle by operating the plant.
“At Mount Pleasant we are building on CIMIC Group’s long established partnership with Mach Energy and drawing on our relationship with Thiess, also a member of CIMIC Group, to deliver a seamless service that will maximise the value from the site.”
