NRW Holdings’ Primero Group has received an updated contract award for Core Lithium’s Finniss lithium process plant near Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory.
The A$40 million engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract, which brings ahead from initial preferred status, will begin immediately and, as the project is fully funded, see site works beginning in March 2022. Commissioning of the facility is expected next October.
Primero’s award follows its completion of the project’s definitive feasibility study and subsequent study updates.
“The Primero brand is synonymous with the processing and operation of battery metals and future energy, and the Core Lithium project is another example of the quality of our processing knowledge in these industries,” Primero Managing Director Cameron Henry said.
“The working relationship with the Core team has been a four-year journey, and we look forward to delivering on this contract and continuing the relationship with Core.”
