A first for RHI: Value Engineering Workshop completed for Kazzinc, Kazakhstan
Within the scope of the continuing collaboration between Kazzinc, Glencore Technology, and RHI, we signed a contract for early contractor involvement in a hydropolymer hydrometallurgical project for the annual production of 60,000–70,000 tons of copper, zinc, and silver concentrates.
RHI, in collaboration with Kazzinc, is implementing advanced international techniques within the scope of the hydropolymer project, for purposes of project development and to estimate investment costs, in accordance with IACEE standards.
As a part of this work, a value engineering workshop was held to optimize the design approach and project costs.
Design institutes and partners of RHI — KazNIItech, Kazgiprotsvetmet, and Khimprom Engineering — all participated, along with representatives of the client, Glencore Technology, and RHI.
As a result of the two-day workshop, the design approach in 3D B/M models was discussed in detail and the optimal solutions were adopted.
