Mozambique-focused titanium minerals producer Kenmare Resources plc has awarded Mammoet, the global leader in engineered heavy lifting and transport, with a contract to relocate one of its wet concentrator plants. The mining plant and its dredge will be moved from its current mining location in Namalope to a new high-grade ore zone in Pilivili, at the Moma Mine located on the north-east coast of Mozambique.
The plant, consisting of a 1,700t floating dredge and a 7,000t Wet Concentrator Plant (known as WCP B), measuring 80m long, 24 m high and 60 m wide, will be transported using SPMTs over a purpose-built road. The road is 23-km long and 66m wide, with a weight-bearing capacity of 8.4 t/m2 and a maximum inclination of 2.5º, that will allow for the 60m-wide plant to be safely transported.
