When complete the Oyu Tolgoi mine, located 550 km South of the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar and 80 km North of the Mongolia-China border, will be the largest copper-gold project in the world. CWA was retained to provide design and procurement assistance for the finished product export system. This includes a concentrate storage building with the capacity to accommodate a present and future expansion of up to 80,000 MT and the world’s largest bagging system for cohesive bulk materials. Fabrication and equipment supply are taking place in both China and North America, while CWA is assisting with procurement on both continents including placing staff in China for Quality Assurance and expediting purposes.
