Process Plant Upgrade Study
- BMA Gregory Crinum Mine
The process plant upgrade project involved a throughput study of an existing CHPP, and the development of capacity upgrade projects.
The deliverable was to provide a $ - for – tonnes analysis of bottlenecks identified by the throughput study with an ultimate aim to increase production by ~25%.
Working closely with the client, Waves responsibilities were to deliver:
- Plant throughput/production/processing study;
- Plant debottlenecking;
- Capital upgrade project scoping and preliminary design;
- Capital estimates and schedules;
- Staged upgrade program based around capital cost per step increase in annual production.
The client gained a quantified understanding of their current plant and its existing bottlenecks, along with a detail plan of capital upgrades with information necessary for formulation of business cases.
