Norwest was retained by a leading Mongolian coal producer as coal preparation advisor for the development of a US$30 million coal handling and preparation facility. This facility is designed to ultimately process 15 million tonnes per year of high-quality coking coal mined in Mongolia’s world-class Tavan Tolgoi basin. Norwest managed the comprehensive washability and carbonization testing programs and developed the original process flowsheet design using process simulation software. Based on this work, Norwest engineers prepared plant, equipment, and systems specifications as part of the client’s efforts to engage a turn-key engineering, procurement, construction, and management firm. The project is currently under construction and Norwest continues to act as the client’s owner’s engineer for this project.
At Norwest we know how to successfully develop and optimize energy and minerals projects. Experience has taught us that a comprehensive approach is needed to assist clients in developing new ventures and enhancing the success of existing operations. Our expert teams are well versed in all phases of project development, from initial project planning through delivery of the product to the customer.
