WSP plays an active role in the metallurgy and light metals industries. We have multidisciplinary engineering expertise and we are able to work with clients at every stage of their projects, from design to commissioning.  

The metal industry plays an important role in our economy, with an influence on diverse end-user applications in a number of sectors such as agriculture, engineering, chemical, automotive, infrastructure, and electronics. 


Our team has unique skills in the light metals field and has worked on numerous projects in the aluminum and magnesium industries, focusing on electrolysis, foundries, anode preparation, aluminum smelters, metal and scum recycling, as well as magnesium alloys production and recycling facility using state of the art melting and purification technology.

Detailed Expertise at all Project Stages

We also have related expertise in light metal transformation plants, high voltage installations, dust removal equipment, off-gas treatment, steel frame and reinforced concrete structures and instrumentation and specialized commands.


WSP has successfully completed numerous projects of which we worked closely with clients from the project inception. The early phase activities includes process control engineering, supply and installation, optimization and design and construction services to clients in the metallurgy industry, business plan preparation, capital and operating cost estimates, market studies as well as environmental and construction permit applications.


Innovative and Comprehensive Solutions

Also, our team has experience with various contracting approaches including design-build and EPCM services while maintaining specialized expertise to address various light metals plants issues such as capacity to recycle many types of industrial magnesium scrap, including turnings and dross.


In the later stages of the project, our team performs a complete turnkey lump sum design-build as well as undertaking the overall EPCM for the entire project.


We are skilled in the design of specialized equipment, including casting furnaces, molten metal pumps, high current busbars, fluid-bed dryers, chlorination equipment and the reconditioning of pot shells and linings.
