:: Alcan Refinery Expansion Study Underway

A Joint Venture (J.V.) composed of Leighton Contractors and an SNC-Lavalin Australian subsidiary, SNC-Lavalin Australia PTY Ltd. has signed a contract with Alcan Gove Development Pty Limited to undertake the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) preliminary to the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) for the proposed expansion of Alcan's alumina refinery at Gove, in Australia's Northern Territory.

The J.V. team (known as LSL) will be lead by SNC-Lavalin and will work cooperatively with Alcan Engineering (ALCENG) on the DFS for the proposed expansion.

The DFS will examine the financial feasibility and engineering requirements of the expansion, which is planned to increase the refinery's capacity from 2 million tonnes to about 3.5 million tonnes per annum.
