Steel industry stimulus package released

The Northern Territory Government will bring forward work valued at $5 million as a stimulus package to support our local steel fabrication and galvanising industry. Tenders will be released in December 2016 and January 2017 and will be configured to distribute small packages of work across the industry.

The projects will benefit the community as well as local businesses by providing higher standard facilities at sporting venues, parks and wildlife infrastructure to help keep the community safe and improving the visitor experience at popular leisure spots.

This work is part of the Government’s new infrastructure plan and is targeted towards local steel fabricators who employ Territorians.

The work will be separated into small packages to ensure local businesses have the opportunity to win work and to encourage the work to be spread across the industry.

Tenders will specify that where the supply, fabrication or galvanising of steel is specified in the tender, tenderers must include a price for these components from local Northern Territory businesses.

Please see the Northern Territory steel industry stimulus package project page for further information.
