Project Background

Vale’s multi-billion dollar S11D project is a world-class iron ore processing facility located approximately
1,940 km north east of Sao Paulo in Para State, Brazil.

Our Services

To mitigate potential schedule impacts attributed to possible environmental permitting delays, we designed the beneficiation plant in a modular fashion (over 100 modules), allowing design work and engineering to be carried out far earlier than with a traditional approach.

The plant was designed by our modularization specialists in Edmonton, Canada, with support from our local Brazilian team in Belo Horizonte.

Results

We are continuing to support Vale through the final stages of this project with construction management support.
