Wood has appointed Envision to act as the single source of site data as they commence work on one of Australia’s most significant resources projects; a $1.3bn Lithium Hydroxide (LiOH) Conversion Plant. Located approximately 160 kilometres south of Perth, near the port town of Bunbury, the plant will have a capcity of 60,000 t/yr of LiOH with an ability to expand to 100,000 t/yr over time.
Envision’s role will be to support Wood by capturing and collating live site data provided by the project’s contractors as they deliver the facility.
Envision’s core strength is our ability to ensure that project owners have a clear line of sight across all data generated by the delivery of a project. This includes Site Records including Diaries, Photo/Comments and Events as well as activity codes such as the capture of direct labour, subcontractor labour-hire and equipment hire.
We are then able to turn that data into real-time reporting that can allow timely and informed project decisions to be made based on actual data. With such a large scale and complex project, decision making and project controls are critical and through Envision Wood will be able to manage the delivery of the facility more efficiently and effectively than relying upon the traditional end of week or month reporting.
The project’s earthworks commenced in January 2019 with the commissioning of the site expected to start in stages during the course of 2021.
