Location: Catamarca, Argentina
Tres Quebrada Lithium Carbonate Project.
- Development of detailed engineering and procurement services for phase I 25 tons per year for both operations at the Salar and Fiambala. Technical support and adaption of process/piping engineering developed in mainland China to Argentinean codes and standards.
- Development of feasibility study for phase II 25 tons per year expansion project, including process design, multidisciplinary FEED engineering, and study management services. Total HHs by SAXUM: 49,000hs. SAXUM’s Feasibility Study included all applicable process engineering, indicating that the entire flow sheets, as well as mass and energy balances, have been finalized and fixed and are fully specified to support basic engineering and obtaining firm vendor quotes. It also included sufficient multidisciplinary engineering designs to support capital and operating cost estimates with an accuracy of +/- 15%, and in the case of the capital cost estimate, has minimal reliance on factored estimates and primarily relies on takeoffs and unit rates.
