From initial concept through to commission and management, Ausenco provides end-to-end solutions regardless of where in the world a project is located or the stage it's at in the project lifecycle. We have extensive experience in delivering large EPC and EPCM projects and have the ability, knowledge and expertise to manage clients’ projects on their behalf, within schedule and allocated budget.
As an example of our experience in this area Ausenco, in a joint venture, delivered the >US$400M Lumwana project processing plant and associated infrastructure, located in Zambia, for Equinox as a lump sum EPC project.
We also provided EPCM services for the award-winning Gibraltar copper-molybdenum mine, located in south-central British Colombia, the second largest open pit copper mine in Canada. We successfully increased milling capacity at the mine to 85,000 t/d with minimal interruption to existing copper and molybdenum production.
Since 2011 we’ve worked with Hudbay Minerals to provide EPCM services to design, construct, and commission the 25 Mt/y concentrator and associated infrastructure for the Constancia high-altitude copper-molybdenum project in Peru - which has a feed rate of 1 tonne per second.
Recently, our established working relationship with Ferrous Resources resulted in Ausenco being contracted, along with ARCADIS Logos, to provide EPCM services for the Mina Viga project, located in Minas Gerais, Brazil, which has a total mineral resource of 1.5 billion tonnes of iron ore. Ferrous Resources aims to produce 17 Mt/y at Viga from January 2018.
Throughout each stage of the project lifecycle, the safety of our people is paramount. We actively promote our culture of zero harm to prevent harm or injury to people, the environment and the community, and to ensure that health, safety, environment and community (HSEC), as acore value, is not compromised. An example of our HSEC commitment is the Ausenco-managed contribution of 7.7 million LTI-free hours to the approximately 21 million total hours worked on the Constancia project during 2014.
By engaging in an EPCM contract, our clients ensure that their project is managed in a controlled manner to meet their needs. To read more about the EPCM projects we’ve managed and what was involved, click on the related case studies.
