Over the years, Technip has acquired recognized expertise and developed dedicated capabilities in the mining and metals sector with numerous successfully completed or ongoing projects in the treatment of nickel, uranium, phosphate, alumina and iron ore.
Technip also provides engineering services from basic to detailed design, project management and control for the nuclear market.
A worldwide actor involved in onshore mega mining projects…
In the framework of its proactive commitment for technology and
know-how, in 2009 Technip acquired Sofremines, now Technip Mines, a
major actor in consulting and engineering services for the technical and
economic assessment of mines and ore beneficiation plants so as for
scoping studies, expertise and technology assistance.
Technip's service offerings cover the entire project lifecycle, from conceptual studies to EPC or EPCM services. Its expertise covers a wide range of technologies developed and applied in the following main areas:
And developing technologies and know-how for subsea mining exploitation and offshore beneficiation...
The resource potential of seafloor deposits is massive: oceans and seas cover 71% of Earth, with the surface area of the Pacific Ocean twice that of all the continents. Most of the oceans are poorly explored, relative to dry land and contains numerous deepwater ores as seafloor massive sulphides, cobalt-rich crusts, manganese nodules… Technip is active in and monitors closely the challenging technical and environmental requirements and opportunities within the future subsea mining projects. Since 2005, Technip is devoting important efforts to research and development in this new domain of intervention and offers services related to this market sector.
Technip is the owner of the Krebs Mixer-Settler technology applied for solvent extraction. Since 1976, this technology has been successfully operating in 44 plants of 17 countries, totalling more than 500 mixer-settlers for the solvent extraction of metals as nickel, cobalt, copper, zinc, gold, rare earths and uranium.
The Dorr-Oliver FluoSolids® technology makes Technip a leading provider of fluid bed systems, with nearly 1,000 reference projects. The technology was developed over a 60-year period with a wide range of applications in the metallurgical, chemical, and waste disposal industries and consists of modern fluidized bed systems for roasting, calcining, incineration applications.
Technip develops its know-how and intends to extrapolate its capabilities in major-scale project management and high value engineering offerings to the non-hydrocarbons energy market, being involved in some nuclear industry projects.
Technip provides for projects in the nuclear market engineering services from basic to detailed design, project management and control assistance and construction services.
