The contracts for heavy cranage and heavy transport works were awarded in the last two months and will be carried out over the next three years.

Along with working on the Gorgon project, Sarens Australia will provide its services to Bechtel for the three LNG projects on Curtis Island.

It will also work on BHP Billiton and Mitsubishi’s Hay Point coal expansion stage 3 project in McKay.

To service the contracts, Sarens Australia will increase its fleet with two 600t crawler cranes, two 250t crawlers, 72 axle lines of self propelled modular trailers and about 60 new telescopic cranes.

“With Australia currently being the fourth biggest LNG exporter in the world and the mining sector being a significant primary industry, it is not surprising these high value investment projects need state of the art construction equipment like cranes and heavy transport machinery,” Sarens Australia country manager Gert Hendrickx said.

“We are all very pleased to see our ongoing efforts have resulted in these multiple contract awards.”
