Contract awarded for metal project


An engineering and construction company has won a tender for a metal development on New South Wales’ Central Coast.

Clough Projects recently secured a contract for Australian Bauxite’s Alcore Production Plant in Berkeley Vale, 20km north of Gosford.

The successful bidder is tasked with performing the advanced engineering required for the design and construction of an aluminium plant that can refine and recycle byproducts from aluminium smelters into aluminium fluoride, which can be sold back to the same smelters as an electrolyte for the smelting process.

After six months of testing the proponent discovered the process could create one of the world’s most profitable and fastest growing operations.
