SNC-Lavalin awarded EPCM contract by Codelco in Chile
SNC-Lavalin has been awarded a contract by the Chuquicamata Division of Codelco Chile to provide overall project management, and detailed engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services, for the upgrade of the concentrators at their Chuquicamata mine in Chile.
This award follows the initial feasibility study competed by SNC-Lavalin in the first half of 2012.
The scope of the EPCM contract is to upgrade the secondary and tertiary pebble crushing system at their processing facility, allowing it to process 104,000 tonnes of ore per day, which translates to 2,200 tonnes per hour with 80 per cent utilization. This will be achieved by improving feeders, conveyors, classifiers and crushing units. The total capital cost of the scope under SNC-Lavalin’s management is estimated at US$120 million.
“This project is an excellent example of a sustaining capital project for an existing client,” said Dale Clarke, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. executive vice-president for Global Mining & Metallurgy.
Detailed engineering and early construction work on the pebble crushing system are already in progress. The project is scheduled for mechanical completion by the end of the third quarter of 2013.
