The Frieda River Project is a greenfield pit to port development located in the Sandaun and East Sepik Provinces of Papua New Guinea. There are no roads with-in 70km of the site. Our scope of works was to carry out preliminary engineering, quantity take-offs, estimating assistance, scheduling and construction logistics for the following infrastructure components;
Approximately 30 bulk earthworks pads for permanent and temporary mine infrastructure, a 129km long main access road between the marine facilities and the mine site, secondary roads, construction laydown pads international standard airport, and temporary marine offloading facilities on the Frieda and Wario Rivers.
The access road and pads were located in very difficult terrain ranging from the Sepik River floodplain to very steep mountainsides nearer the mine site. The site experiences 7m to 8m of rain a year. Our scope included earthworks and drainage design.
Design and layout of all support facilities and associated buildings including; accommodation camps, MIA, administration & training, and temporary construction facilities.
Process and Pipelines:
Water treatment (raw and pitwater), sewerage, and hydrocarbon storage and distribution. Concentrate, tailings, water, and hydrocarbon pipelines
We completed this scope within budget and tight time constraints to the client’s full satisfaction.
