Falcondo Nickel Mine Plant Improvement Project
Client: Falconbridge Dominicana, S.A.
Location: Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Shaft furnace #5 of the Falcondo Nickel Mine Plant was modified to include a transfer duct from reactor #9 for nickel ore calcination. BPEI provided mechanical engineering design, coordination of design implementation, and onsite inspection to verify equipment installation. Ongoing tests of the modified design are yielding positive results.
