Metocean Study to Support Pituffik Titanium Project

FinnAust Mining has just announced that Svašek Hydraulics, a consultant in coastal, harbor and river engineering, has been appointed to conduct a Metocean Study at the Pituffik Titanium Project in Greenland.

The Metocean Study is being undertaken as part of the ongoing dredge mining studies currently being undertaken by IHC Mining B.V, a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal IHC, to define an optimal development solution and a high level cost estimation for mining the marine environment at Pituffik.

Therefore Royal IHC will project manage Svašek Hydraulics’ activities, expected to commence in the coming weeks, to ensure that the deliverables meet its requirements.

FinnAust CEO Roderick McIllree said: “All of our activities, be it our continuing resource definition program, our recently completed Environmental Impact Assessment or our metallurgical testwork, are focused on executing on the exciting potential Pituffik demonstrates to deliver a multi-decade operation supplying low impurity Ilmenite to the market.”

This study by Svašek Hydraulics will provide Royal IHC with important information to support its dredge mining studies and we look forward to working with them to add value to this unique asset in Greenland,” added McIllree.

Svašek Hydraulics’ expertise focuses on water dynamics (currents and waves) and sediment transport caused by the water dynamics.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
