Hatch to provide EPCM for Kumba
Hatch has been appointed to provide EPCM services for the plant and stockyard area of Kumba Iron Ore’s Sishen South Mine project in South Africa.
The project is a remote iron ore mine in the Northern Cape area. The principal Sishen Mine is 80 km north of the new project. The Sishen South Mine will produce an initial nine million tons per annum of iron ore.
The project includes a crushing and sizing plant, stockpiles and a rail-truck loading station.
Kumba is managing the overall project.
The project is being carried out in South Africa with detail engineering being provided from Hatch’s São Paulo office in Brazil.
Hatch’s procurement group in China is assisting with quality control of vendor-supplied stackers and reclaimers, which are being manufactured in China.
