The three-year contract involves project-close-out work and engineering, procurement and construction management with about $150 million in construction costs for each project, AECOM said Wednesday.
Some of the proposed jobs include development of a container terminal in Cape Town, iron ore-train loading buildings in Postmasburg, rail and material-handling facility for a railroad car rotary dumper in Saldanha and other structures in the area.
John M. Dionisio, AECOM CEO and chairman, said the company’s local workforce will be able to take advantage of the international team’s experience on similar projects.
AECOM staff based in North America, Africa and Australia will conduct the work for the South African state-owned firm.
Dionisio added the infrastructure upgrades expand AECOM’s existing relationship with Transnet on a planned Durban Digout Port.
