Nyrstar Port Pirie Smelter - Sinter Plant Upgrade Project


Nyrstar Port Pirie is an integrated multi-metal smelter and refinery which outputs approximately 235,000 tonnes of refined lead and lead alloys, 16 million troy ounces (500 tonnes) of refined silver and approximately 45,000 tonnes of zinc per annum.  Other by-products include copper, gold and sulphuric acid.

GPA completed the replacement of a major control system upgrade on process critical plant which involved the replacement of three existing Toshiba Distributed Control System (DCS).  GPA provided a full EPCM Turn Key solution to Nyrstar managing all aspects of the project scoping, planning and implementation.  GPA provided project management, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services to successfully deliver the upgrade on time and on budget without any unplanned plant down time.
