‘BUSLINK VIVO’ Wins Ichthys LNG Project
Employee Transport Contract

Buslink VIVO, a partnership between Veolia Transdev and Buslink, has been selected to provide employee transport services for the Ichthys Project onshore LNG facilities in Darwin, Northern Territory. The contract has been awarded to Buslink VIVO by the EPC Contractor, JKC.


The 56-month contract will be operated by Buslink VIVO as a 50/50 partnership between Buslink Connect, a subsidiary of Buslink Australia, the Northern Territory’s largest privately-owned bus company, and VIVO Connect, Veolia Transdev Australasia’s employee transport business.


The contract is for the operation of buses and minibuses to transport the Ichthys LNG Project’s onshore construction workforce. At the peak of the project, Buslink VIVO will transport approximately 4,500 staff using more than 100 buses. Buslink VIVO will also supply approximately 50 contractor operated vehicles. More specifically, the contract covers the following services:


• Accommodation village to jobsite, airport, and Darwin;
• Night shift operations;
• Shuttle services around the site;
• Transport of Darwin city office staff;
• Transport of mail and documents between Darwin City Office, site and accommodation village; and
• Transport of family members from suburbs to Darwin.


‘This contract win is a vindication of our decision to continue our diversification into the employee transport market and to partner with other high quality operators. We successfully managed the Worsley contract in WA for 4 years and have been operating similar services in Central Queensland since earlier this year.’ said Jonathan Metcalfe, CEO of Veolia Transdev Australasia.


Brian Hannon, Buslink Australia Group Chairman, said: ‘The Ichthys LNG project is a truly international scale venture and it is therefore very pleasing that, as a local Territory company, we have won such a significant employee transport contract as part of the project.’


Buslink Managing Director, Mick Hannon, said: ‘The JV with Veolia Transdev would work very well as both parties would bring a different skill set to the table and I’m looking forward to getting cracking with the first buses set to roll in January’.


Buslink VIVO looks forward to delivering the important task of safely transporting the work force for the Ichthys project onshore LNG facilities.
