The $1.7 billion expansion project will make Mosaic’s facility the world’s largest potash mine by 2024.
Steven Vermeulen, Nexans Executive VP Americas, said: “We look forward to supporting Mosaic K3’s ambitious growth plan in the framework of the contract that reinforces Nexans’ position as the cable solutions leader in underground and open pit mining.
“This agreement builds on a 10-year relationship between our organisations as well as a strong cooperation with our distribution partner, whose ability to handle logistics and cable management perfectly complements our superior and proven solutions.”
The first cables will be delivered in 1Q18, and will be manufactured at the Nexans AmerCable facility in El Dorado, Arkansas, US. The company will deliver over 1300 km of CSA-certified cables for K3, including Tiger ® brand SHD-GC portable power and mine power feeder cable.
