Carmichael construction kicks on
The company said the machines were digging and hauling materials to make roads at the site.
The Liebherr 996 is one of the largest production diggers in the world, weighing in at over 600 tonnes. The bucket holds 36 cubic metres and carries over 70 tonnes of material in each scoop.
The new footage comes after the company last week marked 12 months since the start of construction on its Galilee Basin coal and rail project.
Recent milestones include completion of work to upgrade the mine site airstrip, with flights between Townsville and the mine site starting in late May and Rockhampton flights last week.
Adani says more than 500 people are already working on the project’s construction sites.
