Adani shares contractor and worker information for the Rail, Port and Carmichael Coal Mine project
BUSINESS LEADERS are invited to the upcoming Enterprise Evening to hear from key Adani representatives on October 12.
Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise is hosting the event with Adani’s Regional Content Manager Ben Hughes and Media Relations Manager Ron Watson sharing information on the Adani Megaproject in Central Queensland.
The Enterprise Evening will give attendees an overview of the aspects of the Rail, Port and Coal Mine development, insight on how partnerships can be formed with Regional Queensland workers, upcoming supply chain opportunities with Adani, and an overview of the Adani Regional Content strategy.
Adani is a globally integrated infrastructure and energy business covering ports and logistics and power generation (including thermal and solar renewable energy generation, power transmission, agribusiness and resources).
As Principal of Hughes et al, Mr Hughes has been working exclusively in the Surat Basin for the past 10 years developing Local Content strategies for major projects. Hughes et al are Platinum TSBE members and in 2015 TSBE introduced Mr Hughes to fellow TSBE members Strategenics. The companies teamed up to form EconomX which has now been selected as the platform to deliver the Adani Regional Content Strategy (ARCS).
Mr Watson has knowledge of the development of the Bowen Basin and has been underground in almost every major mine in Australia. Now working for Adani that spans India, Asia and now Australia, Mr Watson will outline how Adani has made the single largest investment from India into Australia to-date, setting the foundations for a strong trade opportunity between the two countries.
TSBE executive chairman Shane Charles said with the Carmichael coal mine, port and rail project pending announcement, now was the time for businesses looking to join the supply chain to explore the opportunities available.
“We know that the business community in our region has an unparalleled capability as a result of the gas industry,” he said.
“We know that we will be a key strategic region for Adani and will provide a number of services and employees to this mega project.”
The Enterprise Evening will be held on October 12 at the Armitage Centre, Neil St, Toowoomba from 5.30pm-8.30pm.
The event is proudly sponsored by Toowoomba heavy equipment parts company Trackspares.
