Ausenco began working with Ferrous in 2009. In 2010, we delivered the concept study and basic design of onshore and offshore facilities for the President Kennedy Terminal, including dynamic simulation studies which optimised the required equipment. We then delivered a bankable feasibility study with the objective of consolidating all data related to the expansion project. The success of the engineering developed by Ausenco, and the partnership established with Ferrous Resources over the years, resulted in Ausenco being contracted, along with ARCADIS Logos, to provide EPCM services for this project.
The project includes construction of all unit operations for a new Beneficiation Plant (crushing, screening, grinding and classification, de-sliming, flotation, thickening and filtration), as well as associated infrastructure which includes the rail load out terminal.
Initially, Ausenco consolidated the basic engineering and made adjustments to the process based on test results. Following this work, the detailed design and implementation at Project Viga 15 will proceed including:
The project has currently been stopped after the completion of the basic design and waits for new definition of Ferrous.
