HPD awarded the suppy of evaporation and crystallization equipment for MagMinerals, Inc. Kouilo Potash Project

HPD has been selected to provide evaporation and crystallization technology for the Kouilou Potash Project located in the Republic of Congo, 15 kilometers from the Atlantic port city of Pointe-Noire. The project, which will produce 580,000 tonnes of potash per year, is owned by MagMinerals, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MagIndustries Corp. of Toronto, Canada.

The production process will produce potassium chloride from solution-mined carnallite. HPD will provide a brine concentration system to reconstitute the carnallite directly from solution mining operations. The concentrated carnallite will then be processed in a five-stage crystallization system that shall produce the expected capacity of 580,000 tpa potash to the quality specified by MagMinerals.
