Valmec has signed a key Memorandum of Understanding (MoU” with the project site’s traditional owners to support its project delivery strategy which will see Valmec work collaboratively with both the traditional owners of the land, Kalkadoon People and Jemena in delivering the civils and underground services scope.
Valmec’s MoU with Mt Isa based Kalkadoon Native Title Aboriginal Corporation (Kalkadoon), will also enable Valmec and Kalkadoon to identify and develop further strategic projects and opportunities situated on their native title lands.
Valmec Managing Director, Steve Dropulich, said, “We are very pleased to have been selected by Jemena as a construction partner on the NGP and be able to continue our strong working relationship.
“It is also pleasing to be able to execute a MoU with Kalkadoon which will support our execution strategy on this project and further enable Valmec to work with local communities and indigenous groups in delivering a mutually successful project for Jemena and its stakeholders.”
