Black & Veatch to supervise the development of an alumina refinery for PT Borneo Alumina Indonesia

According to a recent report, Black & Veatch-led project management consortium (PMC) has been appointed by PT Borneo Alumina Indonesia to manage the development of an alumina refinery in West Kalimantan.

The facility, according to Black & Veatch, will feature a 1 Mt/year smelter-grade alumina refinery, a 2 x 40,000 cu.m/h coal gasification plant and a 3 x 25 MW coal-fired power plant.

As the consortium leader, Black & Veatch is responsible for design review, equipment inspections, and provide power and coal gasification subject matter expertise. Progesys, as consortium partner, will manage the alumina refinery process design scope and Jaya CM, another consortium partner, will support the project with site construction engineers and inspectors.

“As the project consultant, the consortium is responsible for evaluating engineering, procurement and construction bids and reviewing design engineering,” Black & Veatch said.

In addition, it also will monitor major equipment supply, conduct factory acceptance tests, and oversee site construction and commissioning.

Black & Veatch’s knowledge of international and country-specific engineering codes and standards, and contract structures systematically mitigates project cost and schedule risks, according to the company. “By serving as the interface between different engineering standards, Black & Veatch offers clients assurance that EPC contractors deliver on specific project commitments cost effectively,” said Jim Spenceley, Senior Vice President, Mining, Black & Veatch.
