Civmec and Rio Tinto are strategic partners that have previously worked together. Civmec had provided maintenance support across many of Rio Tino’s sites.

“Rio Tinto has always been a good client for us and we have a long history of supporting the safe, high quality and timely delivery of their projects in Western Australia and Queensland,” Civmec chief executive Patrick Tallon said.1

“We are very pleased to have secured this opportunity to partner with them again.”1
