After the appointment of the McMahon-Clough joint venture as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor last week, TNG has announced Como Engineers as the project managers for the development of the Mount Peake vanadium-titanium-iron project in the Northern Territory.
“We already have some of the best names in global construction and engineering sectors as part of our development team at Mount Peake, and we are very pleased to have Como as part of this Tier-1 group,” TNG’s Managing Director Paul Barton said.
For this project, TNG and Como will be establishing a Steering Committee which will allow TNG to maintain its control over the project while Como undertakes critical project management and technical support. This management structure will also ensure that decisions made for the project will align with TNG’s overall development strategy for Mount Peake.
Under their contract, Como will oversee the definition, implementation and evaluation of an efficient and cost effective contracting strategy that will align with the overall project delivery timeline. Como is also responsible for assigning relevant management and technical personnel that will oversee the project’s completion and commissioning.
“We now have an extended team in place that includes German-based strategic engineering parter SMS Group, Australian engineering groups Clough Projects and McMahon Services, and now Como Engineers.
“Having this breadth and quality of expertise available to us will play a very important role in securing our project funding package, completing final engineering and design, and moving the project expeditiously towards development and operations,” Mr Barton said.
The Mount Peake project is located approximately 253 kilometres north of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. Once developed, the mine will produce high-quality, high-purity strategic metal products such as vanadium pentoxide, titanium dioxide and pig iron for markets around the globe.
