Air Products to supply ASU to two oxygen plants in Zambia

LUSAKA, ZAMBIA: Air Products has been awarded the contract to supply two oxygen plants at the site of a copper smelter being built in Zambia by Kansanshi Mining Plc. The scope of the agreement includes Air Products supply of two 750 metric tonne per day oxygen plants, and all air separation unit (ASU) related equipment and design. The construction of the facility will be undertaken by Kansanshi Mining Plc, with cooperation from Air Products. The ASUs are planned to be onstream in 2014.

Air Products has oxygen plants operating at other copper mines also located in Zambia and the local expertise and work at those facilities was of benefit in winning this contract. “The basis for the design of this new plant for Kansanshi comes from the previously constructed plants. Being able to reuse the design for these cold boxes created a win-win for our client and Air Products. We were able to demonstrate that our technology offering was a competitive and proven product,” said Aled Williams, Project Manager, Air Products.
