Thiess 2 mins read

Global mining services provider Thiess has been awarded a six-year contract extension with BHP for the Mount Arthur South Operations in New South Wales, Australia.  

With revenue of AU$1.9 billion, this contract sees Thiess continuing to provide mining services at the Mount Arthur South mine, operating and maintaining mining equipment to support BHP’s production requirements, and working with BHP and the local community towards the planned mine closure.  

Thiess Group Executive Chair and CEO Michael Wright said: “This contract extension acknowledges Thiess’ strong safety record and ongoing operational performance, and builds on the longstanding relationship between Thiess and BHP that started more than 30 years ago.  

“We are strongly aligned with BHP in our commitment to diversity in our workforce, as demonstrated by our award winning MASITE program, which has resulted in significant increases in the number of our local Indigenous and female employees.” 

Thiess Group Executive Australia East Rae O’Brien said: “Thiess has played a key part in supporting the local economy and community of the Hunter Valley region, dating back 80 years, and we are proud to be given the opportunity to continue our presence in the region alongside BHP.”
