Vale Malaysia Manufacturing Sdn Bhd (VMM), a subsidiary of Brazil's mining giant Vale International S.A., is undertaking the iron ore distribution center and pellet plant project in Perak, Malaysia.
The project involves the construction of a 1.8km-long deep-water jetty at Lumut, an onshore stockyard and a distribution center with a capacity to handle 100 million tonnes of iron ore per year. The jetty will accommodate bulk carriers as large as 400,000 deadweight tonne vessels and will have the capacity to handle up to 30 million tonnes of iron ore annually in the initial phase with an option to expand facilities to handle 100 million tonnes per year in the future.
It includes the construction of a pelletizing plant, stockpile area, access roads, storage facility, parking facilities, office facilities and other related facilities. The initial annual throughput capacity of the complex will be 60-million dry weight tonnes but, over time, this will rise to 200-million tonnes.
The project is planned to be developed in phases. The first phase involves the construction of the distribution center with the capacity of 30 million tonnes of iron ore per year, a deep-water wharf and five stockyards. The next phase involves the expansion of the distribution center from 30 million tonnes to 100 million tonnes of iron ore per year.
In August 2011, a joint venture of BAM Malaysia, McConnell Dowell and See Yong & Son was awarded a Design-Build contract to develop the jetty.
WCT has been appointed as the civil contractor on the project. The work includes earthwork, drainage, roads and pavement, slope protection works and temporary sedimentation ponds.
Keller Sdn Bhd, a Malaysian subsidiary of UK's Keller Group plc, has been appointed as piling work contractor, and the joint venture of Arcadis and Towell has been appointed to provide construction management services at a contract value of US$44 million.
In July 2012, WCT was also awarded industrial civil work services contract; and in August 2012, Beumer Group was awarded a supply contract for 16 overland conveyors on the project.
In September 2012, Progesys was awarded a contract for the planning, management and execution of mechanical completion, pre-commissioning and commissioning of the stockyard equipment, facilities and port equipment.
