TZMI also provides management of process testwork and flowsheet development, leading to estimates of capital and operating costs. Of increasing interest to the proponents of new projects is TZMI's ability to provide a realistic assessment of cost competitiveness compared to both existing producers and other potential new projects.
TZMI has been involved in various capacities with a variety of projects in the role of Owners Representative or managing the entire study, across feasibility, definitive or bankable feasibility stages.
Basic engineering from first principles, using current industry best practice is used in TZMI’s cost estimates for feasibility studies. Based on AML results and flowsheets, TZMI has produced capital cost estimates for projects across four continents. Supported by in-depth market knowledge to match pilot scale product qualities, and up-to-date operating cost knowledge, feasibility studies are produced that have unparalleled industry insight and reality.
Where required, we will outsource specialists to cover capabilities not in house, such as detailed engineering. TZMI studies are always of exceptional quality and professionally presented such that they are suitable for submitting to a Board of Directors or financial institution.
