Processing Plants / Kemerton Expansion
Lithium hydroxide processing plant
V&M was requested to provide assistance with WBS and commodity coding during the feasibility phase of the project. The scope of works consisted of various packages which required to be coded for pricing and estimating purposes including bulk materials handling, civils and earthworks, electrical and instrumentation and structural steel packages.
Albemarle Corporation commenced construction at the Kemerton Strategic Industrial Area in Western Australia to develop the Kemerton lithium hydroxide processing plant (“Kemerton”).
Construction is now complete and Kemerton will process spodumene ore to produce lithium hydroxide product and a sodium sulphate by-product. Kemerton is expected to have an initial capacity of about 50,000 metric tons LCE of lithium hydroxide.
