Smelter Campaign Maintenance 21: BHP
Smelter Campaign Maintenance 21 (SCM21) was the largest major maintenance shutdown ever executed by BHP within Olympic Dam. As a major deconstruct and reconstuct project, the objective was to improve the integrity of critical plant and associated infrastructure to enable an extended 6 year campaign of operation. Scope included the demoliton and reconstruction (with enhancements) of the flash smelting furnace and the replacement of key critical equipment (drier coil, sulphur burner, heat exchangers, larox filters) in each facility.
CAPEX: AUD +650M | DATES: 2018 – 2022 | LOCATION: Olympic Dam, SA
Capisce QS led BHP’s SCM21 Project Controls team during both the design and execution phases and were critical in contributing to the project’s success.
Capisce QS delivered effective Project Controls across all phases by supporting the implementation of robust systems and procedures and providing BHP with accurate Cost/Schedule data, in a format that could be understood and often in an accelerated timeframe, that enabled BHP to make informed decisions to mitigate risks early and drive project performance.
Solvent Extraction Fire Foam Pipework: GHD
BHP’s Solvent extraction (SX) fire foam pipework system, which consists of a ring-main, cooling water deluge and foam system; is designed for asset protection. It will contain a fire event that originates at the SX plant and prevent a widespread outbreak through the rest of the facility. The scope of this project encompasses the execution of changes to the eight identified foam zones in the SX Plant to meet current NFPA 11 and Company standards and regulations.
CAPEX: AUD 18M | DATES: 2019 | LOCATION: South Australia
Capisce QS was engaged by GHD to provide capital cost estimates for the modification work to the SX fire foam pipework to eight foam zones included project management, design, procurement and construction costs to provide the scope of works from project approval to plant commissioning and readiness for operations.
Capisce QS assisted BHP in preparing class 4 and class 2 capital estimates for the upgrade works and worked in conjunction with GHD scheduler to align cost and schedule for BHP review team analysis. Capisce QS assessed information provided by ECI contractor and fill in gaps in scope, costs and risk elements in our cost estimates to provide a realistic and true market value for BHP.
Bhp Surface Sustaining Portfolio: GHD/BHP Olympic Dam
The Olympic Dam Surface Sustaining Program combines five separate work packages (WP2 Sands Production to CAF/Deslimes, WP3 Tails Leach Tank 4, WP4 Concentrate Thickeners, WP5 Bismuth and Antimony Removal System, WP6 Precious Metal Refinery) aiming to address the issues relating to asset integrity and sustaining production in order to ensure the current five year plan for production is achieved.
CAPEX: AUD 70M | DATES: 2020 | LOCATION: Olympic Dam, SA
Capisce QS provided cost estimates (one per work package) to complement the Identification Phase Study reports spear headed by GHD.
Enjoying a long and sustained involvement with BHP and GHD as independent estimators and secondees integrated into BHP teams, Capisce QS have become intimately acquainted with BHP’s internal requirements and processes. Furthermore, our approach especially so with BHP is very much centered on our clients’ needs and involves all levels of management, ensuring that the best skill base is always on offer. Using rates built up from first principles, previous project rates, budget quotes from specialist contractors & suppliers, commiserate with Class 4 estimates, we ensure that BHP have the reliable documents integral to their processes.
