CCF Earth Award Winner

17 September 2018 in Uncategorized Posted by

Civmec took home the Category 6 Award (for projects valued more than $75 million) at the Civil Contractors Federation Earth Awards, for works on the Optus Stadium.

The Perth Stadium Steelwork Package comprised the fabrication, supply and erection of key elements of the stadium structure, including the structural frame and roof trusses and various precast elements, including installation of the seating platforms.

Civmec fabricated 15,700 tonnes of structural steel at its Henderson facility, including the 50 roof trusses, each about 45m long and 5m wide.

A significant innovation Civmec brought to the project was to produce the roof trusses as a single-piece element delivered complete to the Stadium, rather than the four pieces as originally designed.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the successful delivery of this iconic project.

Civmec admitted to the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX)

21 June 2018 in Uncategorized Posted by

Tomorrow, Australian-based Civmec Limited (Civmec) (code CVL) will officially list on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). As Civmec is currently listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) the company will now have dual listing status.

Since establishing in 2009, Civmec, an Australian based multi-disciplinary construction and heavy engineering provider, has played a major role in many of Australia’s prestigious and complex projects in the oil and gas, metals and minerals and infrastructure sectors and has established a reputation for being a provider of quality construction and engineering services. More recently the company secured a significant award in the marine and defence market where it will support the nations defence shipbuilding program.

The ASX listing provides Civmec with an additional platform to broaden its shareholder and capital base, while also building on the excellent support Civmec has received from investors in Singapore, since listing on the Singapore Exchange in April 2012.

Mr. James Fitzgerald, Executive Chairman of Civmec, said “this is a very exciting chapter for the company and we see it as positive move for both our current and future Australian investors. We look forward to Australian investors being able to share in our successes through an investment in the company.”

Mr. Patrick Tallon, Chief Executive Officer of Civmec, said “ with our past and current projects predominately delivered by our Australian workforce on Australian soil and our growth prospects mainly focussed on the Australian market, we see this as a natural move to exhibit our home identity.”

Civmec will commence trading on the ASX tomorrow 22 June 2018 at 12:00 PM AEST under the ASX code CVL. For further information visit our web site at

Australia’s New Naval Shipbuilding Company

26 May 2018 in Uncategorized Posted by

Civmec together with Luerssen has agreed to form a new company, Australian Maritime Shipbuilding and Export Group (AMSEG). It will combine Civmec’s steel manufacturing capability and infrastructure with the shipbuilding and design expertise of Luerssen, to develop a new world class sovereign shipbuilding capability, based in Henderson, Western Australia.

It is intended that AMSEG will serve as a subcontractor to Luerssen in the delivery of the SEA1180 offshore patrol vessel (OPV) program. The terms and conditions of the existing contract that Civmec has already been awarded for work on the OPV program will be modified to integrate AMSEG into the management of the program. The outcome of the formation of AMSEG and modification to Civmec’s existing contract will be that Civmec will ultimately perform a larger scope of work on the OPV program.

Using the SEA1180 contract as a catalyst, AMSEG will invest in skills and transfer of knowledge to local subcontractors and suppliers, contributing to building a competitive Australian shipbuilding industry and supply chain that can export to the global naval market.

The new company is currently establishing its highly experienced management team and will be chaired by former Chief of the Royal Australian Navy and former Chairman of major shipbuilder ASC Shipbuilding, Vice Admiral (ret) Chris Ritchie.

Clean up Australia Day 2018

28 February 2018 in Uncategorized Posted by

Yesterday, Civmec employees at our major facilities Henderson, Newcastle and projects participated in Clean up Australia Day – an event that has been running since 1989 and has become Australia’s largest community-based environment event.

In the past 27 years, Australians have devoted more than 32 million hours towards the environment through Clean Up Australia Day and collected over 344 thousand tonnes of rubbish.

This event turned into a world-wide event in 1993, called Clean Up the World – which now sees over 40 million people from 30 countries annually take part. This demonstrated that people across the planet are willing to do something themselves to help protect and care for the environment.

At Civmec, we collected approximately 120 kgs of rubbish, with some of the interesting items including windscreen wipers, car tyre caps.

Thank you to all our employees who were willing to give up some of their day to participate in this event – helping to clean up, fix up and conserve the environment.
