Located close to Bunbury (WA), the Kemerton lithium processing plant will, when completed, be among the biggest in WA and potentially the largest in Australia.
Specialist knowledge and design expertise
Pneuvay Engineering’s mining industry knowledge and design expertise were germane to their appointment as solution suppliers for this system. Pneuvay, with their vast experience in pneumatic conveying system design, manufacture and installation, are pre-eminent in this field. The solution Pneuvay presented to Albemarle Lithium was drawn from the basis of the solutions they have provided to huge, complex industrial sites, mining companies and mineral resource processing and production plants.
Staging the installation allows Pneuvay to continually assess the facility’s needs as it develops, and thus have the understanding and knowledge to contribute to the system’s future growth.
Australia-wide, throughout the mining industry, Pneuvay Engineering has created and supplied the systems required for pneumatic conveying. Known for dependability and longevity, Pneuvay systems deliver in all locations and circumstances. Pneuvay is known for and acknowledged as the pre-eminent creator, manufacturer and supplier of systems for the mining industry. We have successfully completed major projects for such iconic organisations as BHP, Rio Tinto, Sibelco and Xstrata.
The speed at which the requirement for lithium by battery makers has grown has necessitated the development of such plants as Kemerton, where the raw lithium ore is converted into lithium hydroxide.
“We are excited to be involved in the project. The demand for lithium for batteries is growing worldwide,”Paul Malcolm, Pneuvay Engineering’s General Manager of Sales and Engineering.
Such plants will continue to be constructed and to grow.
