WCP B move update
In 2018 Kenmare announced three development projects that together have the objective of increasing annual ilmenite production to approximately 1.2 million tonnes (plus co-products) on a sustainable basis from 2021. The move of Wet Concentrator Plant (WCP) B to the high grade Pilivili ore zone was the final of the three projects.
The increased production is expected to significantly lower cash operating costs per tonne. Consequently, from 2021 the Group expects to be positioned in the first quartile of the industry revenue to cost (or margin) curve, supporting stronger free cash flow generation and providing for increased shareholder returns.
In Q3 2020, WCP B and its dredge were safely relocated to Pilivili. Watch videos and read the announcements relating to the move by clicking on the links below.
