Prudentia was engaged to develop the project from laboratory scale benchwork. We performed all the study work for a 40,000tpa project to be built in Thailand. Piloting was performed in parallel with the study to generate key data for the commercial plant. We built and operated a variety of unit operations including the key crystallisation circuit to generate crystal for third party testing.
Alpha Fine Chemicals Ltd developed a new process for the production of high purity nickel sulphate crystals which is used for the production of nickel based batteries. Prudentia were engaged early after initial laboratory testwork was performed. We developed key documentation including Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams, equipment sizing, equipment specifications, issued Request for Quotations to vendors and site Construction Contractors to generate a Definitive Feasibility Study estimate. The project relocated from Perth to Thailand which improved importing and exporting of key feed and product and resulted in vastly improved project financial robustness.
Prudentia built and operated several unit operations as part of the pilot plant and collected data necessary for design of the large scale plant
