Weda Bay Nickel, Halmahera, North Maluku

Weda Bay Nickel, Halmahera, North Maluku

Weda Bay is one of the national vital objects (out of 6) in Indonesia, where each mining and construction activity must be processed with extra care since these national vital objects are protected by the state as they are the country's largest source of income and dividends.

To be a part of this site, high skills are required where only 4 contractors are trusted to manage this site (with each contractor targeting an RKAB of 4 million tons per year).

Hillcon's ability is proven by being one of the 4 companies who hold contract of work for the nickel commodity, Weda Bay.

Weda Bay is part of the Indonesia Weda Industrial Park (IWIP) where  none of nickel mining products are not allowed to be sold to factories other than IWIP (100% processed by IWIP). Therefore, high level of reliance is needed to process nickel at the Weda Bay site so that it will not be distributed to other companies.

Technically, Weda Bay has implemented a fairly high GMP (Good Mining Practice) system and HIllcon has successfully complied with by meeting the high standard of Weda Bay's man power, equipment, and system criteria. For example, any equipment permitted to operate on this site may only be max. 2 years, each tool must have high specs, the security of the front side of the car must be annually improved, etc. This proves that Hillcon is capable of being a versatile company with capability to meet client needs.

Hillcon’s RKAB is targeting 4 million tons per year (the average company is targeting 2-3 million tons of nickel per year). Hillcon is trusted enough to hold long term 4 years contracts.
