Aberdeen’s EnerMech has secured a contract to provide mechanical, electrical and instrumentation (ME&I) services on the next stage of WestConnex, Australia’s largest road infrastructure project.
Mostly underground, WestConnex is a 33km motorway development representing a $16.8 billion investment by the New South Wales and Australian governments to transform the transportation network in and around Sydney.
EnerMech will provide ME&I services to the $3.2bn M4-M5 Link Tunnels project, the final stage of WestConnex featuring twin 7.5km tunnels accommodating up to four lanes of traffic in each direction.
The firm will engage a 200-strong team to deliver the project and has started mobilisation and engineering support work, with the detailed project work scheduled to commence in August.
This is the third stage of the WestConnex project that EnerMech has supported.
Joint Venture partners Lendlease, Samsung and Bouygues (LSBJV) are delivering the design and construction on the M4-M5 Link Tunnels.
A spokesman for LSBJV said: “EnerMech is our contracting partner of choice to deliver and commission the tunnels’ electrical and instrumentation works and LSBJV welcomes EnerMech’s team to the final stage of this project.”
EnerMech regional director for APAC, Paul McCarthy, said: “With a sound track record on the new M4 and the M8 (New M5) projects, this award demonstrates EnerMech’s ability to partner with our customers to deliver complex projects safely within strict budget and schedule parameters.
“This is a landmark contract for EnerMech and we are delighted to be afforded the platform to demonstrate our integrated services approach on one of Australia’s most strategically important infrastructure projects.”
EnerMech established its reputation in the oil and gas services sector and continues to work on a large range of contracts in the North Sea and international oil hubs.
EnerMech Group CEO, Christian Brown, added: “This latest award cements EnerMech’s credentials as the trusted and competent provider of specialist mechanical, electrical and instrumentation services to large and complex infrastructure projects.”
