NEPEAN Mining Pty Ltd (NEPEAN®) has entered into a partnership with Fitzroy Australia Resources (Fitzroy) for the design and delivery of certain key equipment and infrastructure for the Ironbark No. 1 coal mine.
NEPEAN and Fitzroy will execute the project as an integrated project team in two phases:
- the accelerated design and development, and
- the acquisition, installation and commissioning.
The project will leverage NEPEAN’s leading stream specialist businesses, NEPEAN Conveyors, NEPEAN Power and NEPEAN Longwall. The scope includes conveyors, electrical systems, electrical reticulation, the mine ventilation system and the longwall system.
Founded in 1974 in Narellan, NEPEAN has grown to become a global organisation with 25 businesses across 5 continents. NEPEAN is renowned for its innovative solutions, inhouse design capabilities, world class manufacturing operations, on time project delivery, specialist commissioning and optimisation services, and life cycle support capabilities.
Fitzroy Australia Resources’ CEO Grant Polwarth highlighted the cultural alignment between Fitzroy and NEPEAN, and the mutual focus on value-adding decision making and execution, as key factors in establishing this partnership.
“We are excited about working with NEPEAN in a true partnership sense to deliver a result which has the potential to be company building for both groups as well as change the industry landscape and expectations on major project delivery.”
NEPEAN CEO, Miles Fuller, added: "We are delighted to be forming a partnership with Fitzroy. This partnership will achieve a superior outcome for Fitzroy, by significantly reducing project cost, accelerating delivery time, and ensure superior equipment lifecycle performance. This model will redefine how successful projects can and should be delivered.”
