UGL secures new rail and mining services contracts

CIMIC Group’s services company, UGL, has been awarded new rail and mining services contracts across Australia, generating combined revenues of approximately $260 million.

In the rail sector, UGL has secured work in manufacturing services, as well as operations and maintenance. The company’s expertise as a leading manufacturer of locomotives and rolling stock has resulted in a contract to build four new diesel locomotives for Pacific National.

Furthermore, as a member of the RailConnect NSW joint venture, UGL has been awarded a contract extension by Transport for NSW to increase the size of the New Intercity Fleet. The joint venture will now build and maintain additional passenger cars, increasing the total New Intercity Fleet to more than 550 carriages, with maintenance services to be provided for 15 years from the first train delivery.

In the mining services sector, meanwhile, UGL has been awarded contracts of up to three years to deliver multidisciplinary services including mechanical and piping, electrical and instrumentation, painting and insulation.

UGL Managing Director Jason Spears said: “We are extremely pleased to be recognised as a trusted and established partner to our clients in the rail and mining services sectors. These contracts reflect our strong ongoing relationships, and our reputation for the delivery of outcomes focused on safety, quality, technical innovation and expertise, and reliability.”

CIMIC Group CEO Michael Wright added: “CIMIC Group is Australia’s premier rail and mining services provider. Our end-to-end capability offered through our operating companies enables us to provide seamless, whole-of-life solutions for our infrastructure and resources clients.

“UGL’s expertise and proven performance continues to result in new projects and contract extensions, reflecting our clients’ ongoing trust in our experience and solutions.”
