Albemarle has extended its engagement with OGS to provide commissioning services for Train 2 of the Kemerton Lithium Hydroxide Processing Plant
Perth-based consulting and management services provider, OGS Global, continues to strengthen its greenfield project experience and services offerings in renewable energy, mining, and rare earth projects with the extension of commissioning management and execution services for what is expected to be one of the world’s largest lithium production facilities.
In January 2021, OGS was contracted by Albemarle Lithium Pty Ltd to provide pre-commissioning and commissioning services, processes, tools and test equipment for the MARBL Lithium joint venture’s flagship lithium hydroxide processing plant in Kemerton, Western Australia. The plant is 60% owned by Albemarle.
Following the successful pre-commissioning of Train 1, Albemarle has extended its support contract with OGS to provide continued precommissioning and commissioning services for Train 2. The contract extension underpins Albemarle’s commitment to continued local supplier engagement.
Under the delivery model, OGS provides commissioning management and execution services to Albemarle as an integrated team. This ensures aligned work, resource and HSE management, and consistent reporting. This is supported by OGS’ Project Enablement program which utilises our Integrated Commissioning, Operational Readiness and Assurance (ICORA™) technology platform and framework.
OGS is fully aligned with Albemarle’s ‘Sustainability Framework’, working toward a safer, cleaner, and more sustainable world. OGS operates as a certified Net Zero Carbon business through our emissions framework, reducing climate change and supporting the transition to renewable energy.
This project has positioned OGS as the leading provider of pre-commissioning and commissioning services for lithium hydroxide plants and greenfield projects in WA.
OGS’s vision for 2022/23 is continued innovation and investment into fully developing our Project Enablement service to cater to the growing energy industries.
