WorleyParsons has received a contract to provide engineering, procurement and construction management services (EPCM) for the Tsagaan Suvarga copper-molybdenum concentrator project in Mongolia.

The contract, awarded by Mongolyn Alt (MAK), is expected to generate $67m in revenue.

Located in Southern Mongolia, the Tsagaan Suvarga project will include a 14.6 million tonne per annum copper-molybdenum concentrator and associated infrastructure, including a power line stretching 280km.

WorleyParsons chief executive officer John Grill said the company has recently opened an office in Ulaanbaatar, in a bid to secure a long-term presence in Mongolia and develop the country’s natural resources.

"The Tsagaan Suvarga EPCM contract award supports this strategy," added Grill.

WorleyParson will deliver the work from its Brisbane office in Australia, supported by the company’s other offices in China and Ulaanbaatar.
