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
