Ausenco thrust into coal

Ausenco and Taggart Global USA have formed a joint venture to pursue coal preparation plant engineering opportunities worldwide, with the exception of North America and China, which will target a project pipeline in excess of $10 billion.

Taggart is one of the world's leading engineering firms with extensive experience in the global delivery of coal preparation plant design, engineering and project management.

Recently, Ausenco signed an EPCM contract for the delivery of a new 5 Mt/y coal wash plant and coal handling facility at the Carborough Downs mine in Central

Queensland, Australia. The contract execution marked Ausenco's first entry into the Australian coal market for the delivery of EPCM services. www.ausenco.com
