Monadelphous Group recently secured the major construction contract for Albemarle Lithium’s Kemerton Lithium Hydroxide Plant about 17km north of Bunbury, Western Australia.
Monadelphous is tasked with delivering the pyromet structural, mechanical and piping package and associated piping fabrication for the lithium hydroxide plant.
