ATCO awarded $100m WA contract

ATCO Structures & Logistics has won a $100 million contract for the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project in WA that is expected to create 137 new jobs.

ATCO has entered into an agreement with Bechtel to design, manufacture, transport and install 357 modular units.

The design phase began in mid-April.

As a result of the agreement, ATCO expects to create 42 new manufacturing jobs in Perth and Brisbane as well as 95 jobs onsite at Ashburton North, 12km west of Onslow in WA.

The new roles created onsite include engineering, plumbing, carpentry, electrical trades, general laboring and administrative positions. The agreement also supports 70 existing manufacturing, in-house subcontractor and support staff positions.

The units supplied will be used to form a variety of office complexes and free standing modular buildings onsite including training centres, IT buildings, guardhouses and medical centres.

"Our proven track record providing large scale turnkey projects in Australia was a key element in winning this contract," said Adam Beattie, Managing Director, ATCO.

"We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work with Bechtel and Chevron and will ensure our component of the project is executed to the high standards of quality and safety already evident across the Wheatstone Project."

The units will be built at ATCO's manufacturing facilities in Brisbane and Perth. The 14,000 sqm facility in Perth is the newest addition to ATCO's construction operations in Australia.

The plant is expected to be fully operational in September 2013 and will supply approximately 60 per cent of the required units for the Wheatstone Project.

ATCO Structures & Logistics Pty Ltd is the Australian division of ATCO Structures & Logistics Ltd. Headquartered in Brisbane, Queensland, the division has nine sales offices and five manufacturing facilities throughout Australia.
