Zenith Award winners MIPAC and Xstrata Technology have formalised their long-standing relationship with an exclusive Collaboration Agreement for the delivery of the ISASMELT & ISACONVERT smelting and copper converting technology.
“Our two companies have worked closely for more than a decade and MIPAC has an intimate knowledge of the ISASMELT process.” said Philip Arthur, General Manager – Pyrometallurgy at Xstrata Technology. “MIPAC adds significant value to the end solution delivered to our customers. They have been, and will remain, our first choice supplier of electrical, instrumentation and process control requirements for ISASMELT & ISACONVERT projects.”
“MIPAC will assist Xstrata Technology to market, scope, engineer, commission and develop ISASMELT and ISACONVERT projects. Over many years we have formed a solid relationship and we consistently exceed customer expectations with ISASMELT and associated plant wide control projects.” said, Eddie De Rivera, Managing Director, MIPAC
MIPAC has been involved in most ISASMELT projects since the early 1990s, including two PACE Zenith award-winning projects – the major modernisation of the Kazzinc zinc, lead and copper metallurgical plant complex in Kazakhstan and the plant-wide smelter upgrade for Mopani Copper Mines in Zambia.
