Engenco has won a $4 million contract with Gina Rinehart’s Roy Hill iron ore mine that will see it provide rail workers to build the project’s new 330km rail line.

The company announced it will supply the workers for Leighton subsidiary John Holland and signed the contract with the firm leading the contracting work at the Roy Hill site, Samsung C&T.

It says work will begin in May with the contract expected to last 18 months.

This is the third contract Engenco has won at the Roy Hill project.

 Its specialist training business, Centre for Excellence in Rail Training (CERT) has been awarded two contracts as a preferred supplier of rail training to both Samsung C & T and John Holland at Roy Hill.

These 18-month contracts, totalling approximately $750,000, were signed in October 2013 and January 2014.

Engenco said work for those contracts would centre around providing the development of a construction rule book, rule book training to Roy Hill, John Holland and Samsung C&T employees, and the development and rollout of railroad verification of competency tools.

Engenco managing director Ross Dunning said the latest signing was a significant win for the company.

"Our Momentum business has been able to capitalise on our existing relationships at the Roy Hill project and provide a tailored solution to meet John Holland's needs," Dunning said.

"This contract provides us with significant opportunities to increase our services to John Holland Group and Roy Hill, and we look forward to helping to develop this large iron ore project."
