Process Plant Restart – Langer Heinrich Uranium Mine

Site: Brownfields


Unit Process



Langer Heinrich Mine is situated approximately 80 km east of Swakopmund in Namibia and has been in care and maintenance since May 2018 due to sustained low uranium (U3O8) prices.

With a forecast global U3O8 production shortfall and  a higher forecast uranium price, Paladin Energy approved the Restart Project for the Langer Heinrich Mine (LHM) in July 2022 to bring the mine back into operation.

ADP Namibia is engaged to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services to deliver the LHM Restart Project with planned repair and refurbishment activities, and growth projects to optimize and debottleneck the process. The engagement has included early planning and design followed by the 18-month construction period, to complete in March 2024.

Our services include detailed design, field engineering, contract and procurement management, project cost and schedule controls, and the safe construction and commissioning of the works.

ADP Namibia, with support from ADP Marine & Modular, provides the bulk of all project delivery resources and the project makes use of the ADP Group systems, plans, procedures, guidelines and forms (unless notified otherwise).
