Application In Review

Potash Producer Realizes Operating Savings through Conveying Equipment Standardization

A global Potash mining and processing company planned for a major expansion at an existing facility in Saskatchewan, Canada along with a new processing plant adjacent to the existing operation. The expansion and new construction would double the capacity of the Potash producer. The expansion was needed to meet the increasing global demand for the Potassium-based lot, used mainly in fertilizers. The CDM objective is to design and build the most suitable equipment for the application and provide the lowest total cost of ownership to clients. The EPC contractor and potash producer realized quantifiable savings though the TCO design approach.
