Integrated engineering company, Norfolk Group Limited (ASX: NFK) (“Norfolk”), has signed a $82 million contract for the design and installation of new and modified rail signalling systems for BHP Billiton Iron Ore’s Port Hedland Inner Harbour Project in the Pilbara, Western Australia.
Norfolk’s electrical and communications company, O’Donnell Griffin, will deliver the works and is responsible for the software and hardware design, installation and commissioning of the project.
Up to 200 technical and management staff will work on the project, including designers and software engineers. O’Donnell Griffin will partner with global infrastructure leader, GE, to develop the rail signalling technology, drawing on international best-practise technical expertise in Australia, the US, Europe and India.
Norfolk Managing Director, Glenn Wallace, said the company had a strong focus on continuing to grow its rail business.
“Last year we created a National Rail Group within O’Donnell Griffin to recognise the specialist expertise we can deliver in this area.
“Norfolk has built a strong relationship through our successful work on previous projects which recognises our ability to design and deliver industry-leading rail signalling technology.”
O’Donnell Griffin has a strong experience in delivering rail projects.
