  • Milling capacity will be increased to roughly 240,000 tonnes per day with the new SAG mill.
  • Since the 1980s, FLR has enlarged Grasberg multiple times, as well as several other big projects in Indonesia.
  • FLR enjoys the confidence it has won with Freeport over the years as a worldwide solution supplier for global copper demand.

The project will be overseen by FLR’s Australia branch in Perth, in addition to Fluor’s operations in Jakarta and Vancouver.
