Progesys team contributes to the commissioning of Vale’s Long Harbour project in Newfoundland
The Long Harbour Processing Plant (LHPP) began operations in 2014. The LHPP and the Voisey’s Bay mine and concentrator are an integrated operation. Nickel concentrate from Voisey’s Bay will be shipped to Long Harbour to be processed into finished nickel and associated copper and cobalt products. In designing the LHPP, Vale sought to develop a new, more efficient process for processing Voisey’s Bay concentrate than traditional smelting and refining.
Progesys resources are working in an integrated owner commissioning team to complete the commissioning of the new installations.
