GEA hosts information session on Adani’s local content plan for the Carmichael Mine and Rail project
BUSINESSES across Gladstone will learn first-hand about Adani's local content plan and how local business can become tender ready for the Carmichael Mine and Rail project at the GEA September Industry briefing tomorrow.
The Adani briefing will be delivered by Adani Regional Content Project Delivery Manager Suzanne Mitchell who will inform local businesses about current timelines and procurement schedules for the Carmichael mine and rail project.
Gladstone Engineering Alliance Chief Executive Officer Carli Homann said the Adani project has been on the cards for some time now and it’s good to see the project starting to move forward in awarding tenders.
“It’s great to have Adani in Gladstone again to discuss some of the up and coming work packages,” Ms Homann said.
“The GEA have been working with Adani to ensure our members and local businesses in the region are at the forefront of those packages and we’re working to meet the regional participant local content policy with Adani.”
The briefing will also feature a presentation from the Australian Business Consulting & Solutions Group business advisor Rod Murray who will provide information on entering joint ventures and collaborating with other local businesses to win larger tenders.
“The Carmichael mine and rail project is a major project for Queensland and it’s important that businesses continue to update themselves with relevant information,” Ms Homann said.
“Being able to hear direct from Adani about their local content plan is important for local businesses so they can plan and schedule possible work opportunities moving forward.”
The GEA September Industry Briefing starts at 9am to 10.30am at the Grand Hotel on Goondoon Street, Gladstone.
