CBG Bauxite Production Expansion

Fluor was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract to expand Companie des Bauxites de Guinée (CBG)'s bauxite mine in Kamsar, Guinea. The project will expand bauxite production from 13.5 million to 18.5 million tons per year and is CBG's first of a planned three-phase expansion. Fluor previously provided a feasibility study and early engineering for the project.

Fluor's scope of work includes expansion of the mine's infrastructure, rail system, port facility and processing plant infrastructure and utilities.



Client's Challenge

CBG is jointly owned by the Government of Guinea and the Halco Mining consortium, which includes Alcoa, Rio Tinto and Dadco Investments.

The upgrades and addition of the new facilities will extend the life of the CBG's facility at the mine site in Sangaredi and at the main plant and export facility in Kamsar. The project will boost revenues of CBG and have a positive impact on the economy of Guinea.



Fluor's Solution

Fluor will provide EPCM services to CBG for its bauxite production expansion in Guinea.

Approximately 1,000 constructions workers will be on site at peak, the majority of which will be local labor. Local subcontractors will also support the project.

Fluor will develop and implement a specialized HSE program for this project, of which training will be a large part. Our primary execution centers are in Greenville, South Carolina and Guinea with a employee base drawn from offices in the United Kingdom, Philippines, Chile and Peru.



Conclusion

Fluor is providing EPCM services to expand CBG's Kamsar, Guinea bauxite mine. The expansion project is expected to be complete in 2018.
