The Wyndham Port Facility will comprise key infrastructure for the large-scale export of chloride-free potash products from the Mackay Potash Project. The site is planned to contain a truck unloading hopper, covered storage sheds, granulation equipment, workshops, offices, as well as a conveyor and jetty to support barge loading operations.
Road trains are planned to transport powdered sulfate of potash magnesia (SOPM) and/or sulfate of potash (SOP) from the Lake Mackay processing plant to the Wyndham Port Facility. At Wyndham, the powdered SOPM and SOP will be manufactured into a range of product types, including standard and granular. The strategic location of the granulation equipment at Wyndham will provide important flexibility to manage the company’s product mix to meet customer demands.
The Wyndham Port Facility is being designed to provide a bulk shiploading solution that is specifically tailored for the company’s potash fertilizer products. The proposed barge loadout facility will allow Agrimin to export its products in a range of cargo sizes of up to Ultramax in size (62 000 DWT).
Mark Savich, CEO of Agrimin, said: “Securing this land at Wyndham Port is an important milestone towards establishing a fit-for-purpose and fully integrated logistics chain for the Mackay Potash Project. The planned Wyndham Port Facility will provide a scalable infrastructure solution to underpin Agrimin’s mission of becoming a low-cost and globally significant supplier of chloride-free potash products.”
