Southern Peru Copper Corporation (SPCC) has awarded Jacobs Engineering with a contract to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for its No. 1 Acid Plant upgrade project.

Dallas/USA — SPCC operates one of the world’s largest copper smelting/refinery facilities in Ilo, Peru, which is located approx. 965 km (600 miles) south of Lima.

Under the terms of this lump sum EPC contract, the company will perform modifications to the existing acid plant, decreasing its sulphur dioxide (SO2) emissions while increasing sulphuric acid production capacity through the use of the company’s proprietary Chemetics sulphuric acid technology.

“Our successful relationship with Southern Peru Copper Corporation (SPCC) spans more than 20 years,” said Jacobs Mining & Minerals and Specialty Chemicals Senior Vice President and General Manager Andrew Berryman. “We will provide our innovative Chemetics acid plant technology for this project, complementing the two existing plants our teams previously executed at the site, to further reduce SO2 emissions.”

In addition to the No. 1 Acid Plant project, the engineering company is performing a feasibility study for SPCC in Lima for its power distribution system that will enable the company to support future demand.
