AVI-GmbH in Guinea
Our project engineer, Martin Bensing, is currently working on a project in Kamsar – a port city in Guinea. Here, TAKRAF, a long-standing Leipzig-based company, is building a handling facility for aluminum ore (bauxite). Together with our partner Proplan from Schwarze Pumpe, we work for Schneider Electric Deutschland GmbH on electrical engineering for the project. Since Guinea has the second largest bauxite deposits worldwide, the handling capacity of the existing port facility in Kamsar is to be doubled.
A particular challenge of this project is the tropical climate and the high dust load during the dry season as well as extreme rain showers during the rainy season. These had to be taken into account in the planning and complicate the commissioning, which runs since April 2018.
