Working alongside GAC, Fluor will manage part of the development of the bauxite mine, a dedicated export terminal in Port Kamsar and rail and other infrastructure upgrades. Fluor will leverage our global expertise in marine structures, port terminals and mineral processing along with our experience in Guinea.
Fluor is providing PMC services for three major engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) packages: 1) marine, 2) earthworks, rail & bridges and 3) material handling and infrastructure.
We also managed the site infrastructure scope, site and offsite bridges, water treatment facilities, power plants (package units), port terminal, rail unloading facility, overland conveyors and material stacking and reclaim facilities. Fluor used a dispersed execution approach for basic designs and detail design of earthworks with support from its Delhi, Perth, Houston and Farnborough offices.
In early 2019, Fluor announced that the project achieved a major construction milestone when the project team safely set the car dumper facility's 450-ton rotating assembly into its final location. The car dumper facility is critical to the mine's logistics and operations. It took three days, multiple self-propelled modular transporters and two 750-ton cranes to complete the milestone. A 200-person team, representing 14 different countries and contractors, completed the lift.
The project delivered first ore in June 2019. The ship then departed the GAC Port Terminal for transshipment and final delivery. The team has successfully executed more than 9.7 million hours without a lost-time incident.
