Project Overview

An opportunity exists within the Bechtel project team to work closely with our customer on the SCM21 Project. BHP selected Bechtel as the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contractor for Olympic Dam’s Smelter Campaign Maintenance 2021 (SCM21). 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. The project works cover many areas of the Hot Metals (HM) and Non-Hot Metals (NHM) areas and are being delivered under a series of packages.
