SCE Wins Transport Contract For Peabody Metropolitan Coal Mine



Australia-based SCE says it has been awarded a multi-year contract to transport coal wash reject from Peabody’s Metropolitan mine in Helensburgh, New South Wales, to various tipping locations in the Illawarra district.

Under the contract SCE will be moving 400,000 t/y with special consideration to be given to the Helensburgh community to ensure minimal heavy vehicle impact operating between set hours (7 am-5 pm), including operating outside school zone hours.

The contract is estimated to be worth A$14 million ($9.83 million) during the initial three-year period with options for a further two-year extension.
