A global leader in copper, Kazakhmys PLC operates 16 mines, eight concentrators, and a copper smelter. Kazakhmys awarded FLSmidth a US$63 million contract to design a copper concentrator and provide all of the process technology for a new plant at the company’s Bozshakol copper mine in Kazakhstan to provide 5 million tons of ore per year, a project with $1.9 billion in capital cost.
FLSmidth’s assignment included basic and detailed engineering, plus the company’s proprietary technologies for crushing, milling, flotation, thickening, filtering, cycloning, and pumping. It also included regrind mills, conveyors and feeders, and erection supervision, start-up, and commissioning services.
“CADWorx allowed for standardization plus effective management of engineering design data by providing three pillars: a common design platform, information sharing, and information flow,” explained Javier Barros, staff designer of mechanical and piping at FLSmidth.
FLSmidth received the 2014 CADWorx Drivers of Success Runner-Up Award for its use of the software. The annual Drivers of Success competition recognizes innovative applications of Intergraph products, impressive project results, and significant benefits from collaboration among disciplines and the integration of the products.
