“Cerro Verde Mine, Quebrada Linga Tailings Storage Facility, Partnership between Owner and Engineer of Record to Achieve Robust Design and Construction of Starter Dam and Subsequent Operational Excellence ”
This webinar summarizes the collaborative design and construction process of a new tailings storage facility at the Cerro Verde mine that took place from 2008 to 2015. The close partnership between the designer/engineer of record Stantec (formerly MWH), the mine owner and operator Sociedad Minera Cerro Verde S.A.A., and its majority shareholder Freeport-McMoRan Inc. facilitated a robust design and efficient project execution. They continue to partner on the operational construction to rigorously achieve design expectations.
