AUSENCO CONTINUES SOUTH AMERICAN GROWTH

AUSENCO has continued its strong growth in South America after winning three new ‘innovate and create’ phase projects worth $21 million.

Ausenco’s minerals and metals business line has been awarded a create phase contract to engineer and manage the delivery of Anglo American’s ROM Mercedes expansion at its Chilean Mantos Blancos copper project.

The project involves processing low grade copper waste currently stockpiled at the Mercedes dump and is expected to start operations in 2012.

The company’s process infrastructure business line has won an ‘innovate and create’ phase contract to provide detailed engineering, procurement and construction support for the Cerro Negro Norte iron ore project owned by CAP Mineria in Chile.

The project involves concentrate, water recovery and tailings and pipelines. This new work builds on Ausenco’s earlier completion of the basic engineering phase for the project.

The company’s process infrastructure business line has also won an innovate phase contract to deliver the detailed engineering and design review for a 400km iron ore concentrate pipeline.

The pipeline will transport iron ore concentrate from the Viga mine region in Minas Gerais state of Brazil to the port at Pressidente Kennedy in Espirito Santo state.

Ausenco CEO Zimi Meka says South America continues to provide enormous growth opportunities for the company, with these latest projects further building on its strong strategic footprint in the region.

“We’re pleased about these project wins, which further strengthen our backlog for this year and into 2012,” he says.

“We’re well positioned to continue to grow our South American project portfolio into 2012 and 2013.”
