Since 1898, we have helped customers complete more than 25,000 projects in 160 countries on all seven continents that have created jobs, grown economies, improved the resiliency of the world’s infrastructure, increased access to energy, resources, and vital services, and made the world a safer, cleaner place.

Differentiated by the quality of our people and our relentless drive to deliver the most successful outcomes, we align our capabilities to our customers’ objectives to create a lasting positive impact.

We serve the Infrastructure; Nuclear, Security & Environmental; Oil, Gas & Chemicals; and Mining & Metals markets. Our services span from initial planning and investment, through start-up and operations. Core to Bechtel are our values – ethics, safety, quality, people, culture, relationships, innovation and sustainability, and our covenants – integrity, respect, collaboration, trust, and delivery. They are what we believe, what customers can expect, and how we deliver.

 

An opportunity exists within the Bechtel project team to work closely with our customer on the SCM21 Project.

SCM21 is the second project in a planned series of major shutdowns for the Olympic Dam (OD) surface operations that aim to improve the integrity of critical plant and infrastructure to deliver safe and reliable production performance, productivity improvements in bottleneck areas and sustainable cost reductions in non-bottleneck areas.

 

SCM21 will build upon the scope recently completed in SCM17 and is focused on delivering the next phase of the long-term strategy of decreasing the required OD smelter outage days by at least 20% (over a 20-year period post SCM17) while maintaining an acceptable risk profile throughout the subsequent campaign.
