Allen & Overy advises CPI International Minerals on world-scale alumina project
Allen & Overy has advised CPI International Minerals (CPIIM), a wholly owned subsidiary of China Power Investment Corporation, on the conclusion of the mining convention for CPIIM’s world-scale alumina project in the Republic of Guinea.
The convention, which was signed in Conakry, the capital, on 6 September 2013, constitutes a cornerstone for the $6bn (£3.8bn) project, which encompasses a bauxite mining operation with an annual target production volume of four million tonnes, an alumina refinery and a range of associated infrastructure including a dedicated deep-water port and coal-fired power plant that will provide additional power to Conakry.
The Allen & Overy team was led by partners Matthias Voss (Beijing/Tokyo) and Alexandre Ancel (Paris), supported by partner Meredith Campion (Perth) and associates Marie-Adélaide de Fleurieu, Wang Xue, Frédérique Dugué and Kristin Northway.
