    ABB to supply 22kV passive filters to the Sepon Copper project

    ABB has secured a $1.2 million contract for two 22kV passive filter banks for Lang Xang Mineral's Sepon Copper project in the Savannakhet province of the Lao People's Democratic Republic (PDR).

    The passive filter banks will be used to reduce the levels of harmonic distortion at the 22kV busbar on the main switchboard supplying the site.

    The Sepon project is split into two phases. Phase one, which was completed in 2003, focused on the development of gold resources and associated infrastructure to produce approximately 150,000 ounces of gold per annum. The second phase of the project aims to develop the infrastructure required to produce approximately 60,000 tonnes per annum of Grade A copper cathode. Phase two is scheduled for completion in 2005.

    The Khanong Development Group in Brisbane, an unincorporated joint venture between Ausenco International and Bateman Engineering, is managing the project on behalf of Lane Xang Minerals, a member of the Oxiana Resources Group.
