Contract Power has been working in the power generation industry for over 25 years within Australia and the global market, specialising in the design, procurement, installation and operation of remote diesel power stations. The demand for growth in remote areas where mining sources are rich has seen Contract Power Group thrive as a company that bases its values and beliefs in providing a product that is delivered on time, budget and reliability to a vast number of clients. Contract Power Group provides turn-key solutions for clients but also builds, owns and operates many of its own power stations providing power for both mining operations and remote town sites.
Contract Power was started in 1996 and was based heavily around the servicing requirements to the state government and electricity supply of servicing and maintaining remote WA communities. Contract Power was engaged by Central Norseman Gold mine to construct and operate a 9MW powerstation to service the mine and town. This was the start of a long and successful relationship and continues to operate today. From this point the company grew and received contracts to build several powerstations overseas and then adding a second station to its own and operate portfolio of Savannah Nickel in 2004 which is still in operation today.
The award of several contracts with Fortescue Metals Group and Horizon Power has contributed to the company’s rapid growth – meeting the demand of the iron ore boom within Western Australia, whilst still maintaining the requirement for power projects in other sectors. Since its inception into the power generation market, Contract Power has installed in excess of 397MW, most of which is still in operation today.
With a staff of +35 Contract Power continues to grow and still retains the values of a business that is based around morals and family beliefs. The highly successful and motivated team enable Contract Power to remain at the top of its field.
