Primero Awarded FMG Queens Project Sub-Contract

Primero is pleased to advise RCR Mining Technologies (a subsidiary of NRW Holdings) has awarded us an approximate $30M sub-contract for engineering support and construction services to deliver a Primary Crushing Plant and Overland Conveyor at Fortescue Metals Group’s Queens Project at the Solomon Hub.

NRW CEO, Jules Pemberton, said: “The integration of our new Minerals Energy and Technology team of RCR Mining Technologies, DIAB and Primero on a project such as this, combined with the NRW Civil and Mining team all focused on end-to-end deliver, is another milestone for the business.

The combined award of the Queens Crushing and Overland Conveyor package with RCR is the second package awarded of its type with Fortescue, having successfully delivered the Hopper 9 Crushing Facility at its Cloudbreak mine earlier in 2020. The award demonstrates our working relationship already built with the RCR team and we looking forward to once again delivering critical processing infrastructure for a tier one iron ore client.
