Bauxite plant win for TAKRAF

The contract value is approximately €100 million (US$106 million).

Compagnie des Bauxites de Guinée (CBG), jointly owned by Alcoa, Rio Tinto, DADCO and the State of Guinea, has put in place a programme to increase its export capacity. TAKRAF will supply equipment for the unloading of rail wagons, as well as crushing and conveying of the bauxite.

A major challenge is the brownfield character of the site which means that the new supplies and modifications to the existing plant must be carried out during plant operation. TAKRAF cited very limited plant downtime and difficult conditions for logistics as further hurdles.

Commissioning of the new plant is scheduled for the second half of 2018.
