Black & Veatch to Work on Desalination Project at Chilean Mine

Black & Veatch Corp. has been chosen to work on a water desalination project to boost supplies to the world’s largest copper mine in Chile.

The Overland Park, Kansas-based company that helps build infrastructure from water and energy to government services, will develop the marine works and desalination components on the $3.4 billion Escondida water-supply project in the Atacama desert, it said today in an e-mailed statement.

The project due to be finished in 2017 will deliver 2,500 liters of water per second, or 57 million gallons of water a day, to the copper mine that’s majority-owned by BHP Billiton Ltd. Terms weren’t disclosed. Chile is the biggest copper-producing nation, and China the largest consumer of the metal.
