Minbos Resources has announced that it has signed its EPCM contract for the construction of the Cabinda Phosphate Fertilizer Plant, located in Cabinda, Angola.
On 14 June 2023 Minbos, through its subsidiary entities, signed an Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) contract with EPC Engenharia (Engenharia e Projetos deInfraestrutura Ltda) and its Angolan subsidiary, EPX Angola (Engenharia e Gerenciamento Lda).
The US$4.25 million EPCM contract is for the construction of the Cabinda Phosphate Fertilizer Plant and formalises the engagement that was initially started with a Limited Notice to Proceed (LNTP) agreement signed last year.
EPC Engenharia already has people on the ground in Cabinda and previously sent personnel to Cabinda to assess provincial infrastructure and engage with local engineering companies for supply packages. Work is already underway, with clearing of the project site and perimeter fencing completed last week and earthworks and civils to commence immediately.
Importantly, since the LNTP agreement was signed with EPC in February 2022, the Cabinda Fertilizer Plant was redesigned resulting in savings of over US$10 million, and the relocation from Fútila to Subantando will cut in half the trucking distance from the Cácata Phosphate mine site.
Community work continues at the Cacata Phosphate mine site with installation of a water supply for the village completed.
