WCN Editorial Team 3 Aug 2016 AFRICA BUILDINGS

US-based engineering services provider Fluor has won a $501M contract from Compagnie des Bauxites de Guinée (CBG) for a bauxite production expansion project in Kamsar, Guinea.

Under the contract, Fluor will provide engineering, procurement and construction management services for the project.

The scope of the project includes the expansion of bauxite production from 14.5M to 18.5M t annually. It will also involve the expansion of the mine infrastructure, rail system, port facility and processing plant.

The project represents the company’s first of a planned three-phase expansion. Fluor has been involved in the project since its early stages executing the feasibility study and early engineering.

Rick Koumouris, president of Fluor’s mining & metals business, said: “Fluor has worked with CBG to develop a capital-efficient solution that combines delivery predictability and flexibility for maintenance and future expansions.

“Given the project’s location and unique logistical challenges, Fluor will bring unmatched technical and execution expertise, as well as the requisite Guinea experience, to deliver this project safely, on schedule and on budget.”

The expansion project is expected to be completed in 2018.
