Worley awarded agreement for a polyhalite fertilizer mine project

Published by , Deputy Editor
World Fertilizer,

Worley has been selected as the preferred service provider for Anglo American’s Woodsmith project in North East England. As a result of the selection, Worley has been awarded the programme management agreement (PMA) for the Woodsmith project. Under the PMA, Worley will provide project management and concept engineering and design services. The PMA also includes the substantive terms for Worley to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) services, which will be completed under separate agreements as the Woodsmith project progresses.

The Woodsmith project is the development of a new mine to extract polyhalite; a low-carbon, multinutrient fertilizer product which is expected to support more effective, efficient and sustainable farming.

The project is likely to include two deep shafts and an underground mineral transport system, where a 37 km conveyor belt will transport ore for processing and export at a dedicated material handling and port facility. The operations will be integrated and automated from mine to port, to support safety, efficiency and flexibility.

Project services will be executed by Worley’s UK offices, with support from a number of Worley’s global Centres of Excellence (CoE).

“With the breadth and depth of our global mining experience, we’re well positioned to support the Woodsmith project, strengthening our partnership with Anglo American,” said Chris Ashton, Chief Executive Officer of Worley.
