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, EPCM and Lump Sum Turn Key (LSTK) minerals and metals projects and have the ability, knowledge and expertise to manage clients’ projects on their behalf, within schedule and allocated budget.
Ausenco has delivered a number of the industry's benchmark projects on an EPCM or EPC basis, including 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.
We successfully delivered the Constancia Copper Molybdenum Project for Hudbay Peru SAC on an EPCM basis; providing services to design, construct, and commission the 25 Mt/y concentrator and associated infrastructure for the high-altitude copper-molybdenum project in Peru.
Other successful EPC and EPCM projects have included:
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 a core 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.
EPC and EPCM contracts have a range of pros and cons for resource owners and project teams. Ausenco's Executive Vice President, Ron Douglas, outlines key considerations for EPC and EPCM contracts in his white paper "EPC or EPCM Contracts - Which one can driver stronger outcomes for project owners?".
