Downer wins $286m coal contract

Downer EDI has won a $286 million contract extension to continue the provision of mining services at the Commodore open cut coal mine, adjacent to the Millmerran Power Station about 200km west of Brisbane.

The contract extension with Millmerran Power Partners is for an additional five-year term and will see Downer continue operations at Commodore until the end of August 2024.

The scope of works includes operating and managing the mine and associated activities, including mine planning and design, drill and blast, overburden removal, coal mining and rehabilitation. Downer also holds statutory responsibility for the mine site.

Downer chief executive officer Grant Fenn said the contractor had a strong record of providing mining services to Millmerran Power Partners and helping it to drive efficiencies across its operations.

“We look forward to extending our working relationship and continuing to deliver efficient solutions for the Commodore mine,” Mr Fenn said.
