CPB Contractors has been selected by BHP to deliver its Wind Fences Project; with fences to be constructed at Nelson Point and Finucane Island at Port Hedland, in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
The project involves construction and installation of dust mitigation fences, set to improve environmental outcomes through dust abatement for the Port Hedland township.
The fences are the first of their kind in Australia, designed for the Pilbara’s extreme weather conditions to improve air quality in the area by reducing wind speeds and the potential for dust lift-off.
CPB Contractors is proud of its commitment to local procurement and will ensure that opportunities for Indigenous employment and businesses are maximised.
Work will commence this year and be completed in 2023.
