Solid order book ready for start of FY23 

The engineering firm believes it is in a strong position to kick off FY23 with Duratec reporting an orderbook of $454m and tendered works of $462m earlier this month. 

The company states this provides it with an overall pipeline of tangible opportunities to the tune of $1.62bn. 

Revenue and earnings data for the full year results are subject to audit per standard procedure. 

Defence not the full story 

Duratec is currently working on a number of major projects as the financial year comes to a close, including:

  • Perth Central Park building re-cladding works

  • The extension of Oxley Wharf in Queensland 

  • Western Sydney International AIrport aviation fuel works

  • Northern Territory RAAF Base Tindal re-fuelling facility 

Duratec sees post-covid resembling ‘normal’ 

The company further notes demand for its works on the east coast has picked back up, as demand for works in Western Australia remains steady. 

Management expects these trends to continue through FY23. 

“After operating in very challenging conditions over the past two years, we are delighted by the second half performance,” Duratec managing director Phil Harcourt said.

“We will commence FY23 with a strong order book…whilst mitigating some prevailing market challenges.”
