Alltype Engineering, a subsidiary of WestStar Industrial (WSI), has been awarded a $12 million contract from Lynas Rare Earths (LYC).

Under the contract, Alltype will construct and install a kiln, discharge hood, discharge end building, piping and electrical works at Lynas’ rare earth processing facility in Kalgoorlie.

Alltype is set to begin preliminary work immediately with completion expected by Q2 2022.

Alltype Managing Director Kelvin Andrijich is pleased with the contract.

“We are pleased that Lynas has recognised the experience and capability of our delivery team and the proven self-execution multidiscipline construction capability of Alltype Engineering in the gas, energy, petrochemical and minerals processing industries,” said Kelvin Andrijich, Managing Director of Alltype..
