Gypsum Cell 5B

The Teneo team are thrilled to announce the completion of the Cell 5B Gypsum Stack project for Incitec Pivot at the Phosphate Hill Mine site, North West Queensland.

As principal contractor, Teneo completed both the civil construction components and the complex geosynthetic systems in December 2019.

Phosphate Hill was one of the most remote and challenging sites for the Teneo team. Despite mobilisation and resource challenges, the team proudly delivered another project safely, on time and on budget.
