Fero gets second Gorgon project

Perth, April 29, 2011

Fero is surging ahead with its commitment to the $55 billion Gorgon LNG project at Barrow Island in Western Australia’s North-West.

Fero, under the watchful eye of senior scheduler Eva Garczynski is supplying 5200 tonnes of pre-cast products to the massive development. She also scheduled the Leighton pre-precast job 6000T. She scheduled this in four months, which was an outstanding job.

“Fero has commenced supply to Leighton’s, providing high-tolerance specifications of pre-cast products off-island,” Sam Griffiths, Sales Manager, Fero Reinforcing, said.

With up to 50,000 cubic metres of concrete needed for the $900 million contract, it’s a huge task that Fero is undertaking.

“The capacity of Fero to deliver is critical to the success of the contract. The fine-tolerance specifications required on this project demands a high level of quality assurance,” Mr Griffiths said.

The awarding of the contract to Fero further enhances the reputation of the company in the mining industry.

“The project reinforces Fero as a “tier one” steel and concrete company in Western Australia, etching our position in the market. “It tells the building and construction industry that Fero is capable of supplying to the largest projects on the go,” Mr Griffiths said.
