Geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) play a crucial role in environmental protection by forming a barrier that prevents contamination of surrounding soil and groundwater. This barrier is essential for safeguarding the environment from the adverse impacts of industrial and waste disposal activities.
CPB Contractors, a member of the Cimic Group, has been selected by Sunwater with Georgiou, to be the major construction partner for a dam wall replacement project in Queensland.

Epiroc, a leading productivity and sustainability partner for the mining and construction industries, has won a multi-year order that is its largest ever for digital solutions, from mining company Codelco in Chile. The package of advanced digital solutions will strengthen safety and productivity at the El Teniente copper mine.
Codelco, the world’s largest copper producer, has ordered a combination of digital solutions that will – among other things – optimize fleet management and ore production, provide visibility of people and machines underground, collect machine performance data, and help avoid vehicle collisions. The solutions will be used at El Teniente’s underground as well as open-pit operations.
The five-year project is valued at about MSEK 250, and the first phase was booked in the fourth quarter 2023 at a value of about MSEK 50.
“Digital solutions are increasingly important to ensure mining companies can reach their full potential when it comes to safety and productivity,” says Helena Hedblom, Epiroc’s President and CEO. “Codelco has long been on the technological forefront, and we are happy to continue to support them as they further enhance their digitalization to ensure operator safety and maximum operational efficiency.”
Epiroc, through its Digital Solutions division, is bundling together a wide variety of digital solutions that enhance mining companies’ operations. With this order, Codelco is upgrading its existing digital solutions and adding a collision-avoidance system and the ability to collect machine performance data.
“We are proud to expand our partnership with Codelco as they advance their digital journey, with an offering that provides an agnostic ecosystem across connectivity, automation, safety and productivity applications,” says Paul Bergström, President of Epiroc’s Digital Solutions division.
