ATCO Structures & Logistics Pty. Ltd has entered into an agreement with Bechtel to design, manufacture, transport and install 357 modular units for the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project in Western Australia. The contract, valued at an estimated EUR 76M, commenced with the design phase in mid April 2013.
As a result of the agreement, ATCO expects to create 137 new jobs, including 42 manufacturing jobs in Perth and Brisbane and 95 jobs based on site at Ashburton North, 12km west of Onslow in Western Australia. The new roles created on site include engineering, plumbing, carpentry, electrical trades, general labouring and administrative positions.
The agreement also supports 70 existing manufacturing, in-house subcontractor and support staff positions.
“Our proven track record providing large scale turnkey projects in Australia was a key element in winning this contract,” said Mr Adam Beattie, Managing Director, ATCO Structures & Logistics Pty Ltd. “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 supplied will be used to form a variety of office complexes and free standing modular buildings on site including training centres, IT buildings, guardhouses and medical centres. The units will be built at ATCO’s manufacturing facilities in Brisbane and Perth.
