Sedgman has won the EPC contract for Alcoa’s Kwinana filtration plant.
The $59.8 million contract will see Sedgman EPC work as the main integrating contractor for the alumina refinery in WA.
According to Sedgman “when complete the filtration plant will produce lower moisture content bauxite residue from the refinery”.
“This will permit ongoing reside storage within the existing storage area, deferring the need to construct new drying areas.”
Sedgman’s work includes design, procurement, delivery, construction, integration, and commissioning of the plant and its associated process infrastructure.
Peter Watson, Sedgman’s CEO, stated it was exciting to be working with Alcoa, following its recent front end engineering design process.
“We have been working closely with Alcoa over the last few months to understand and refine the design and delivery model to meet the requirements of this project,” Watson said.
Detailed design has already begun on the project, with completion slated for April 2016.
