K+S Legacy Potash Modules
At Saskatchewan’s newest potash mine, a solution mine near Regina, PCL teamed up with Supermétal to produce 72 modules. Supermétal’s pre-assembly yard employed 50 Ironworkers and was constructing simultaneously 10 modules at a time, to meet a tight delivery schedule.
At an investment of about $4.1 billion, Bethune mine is the single largest project in the company history of the K+S Group.
The mine has enabled K+S Group to:
gain access to valuable potash resources from an additional source
better positioned itself to participate in the expected market growth
decrease its average potash production costs significantly
become the only potash producer with production sites on two continents
extend its worldwide presence and proximity to markets
strengthen its competitiveness significantly
