Toronto, Canada—Hatch has been featured in an article about The Mosaic Company’s New Wales MicroEssentials Conversion Project in a recent issue of Fertilizer International.

The article takes a close look at Mosaic’s largest phosphate project to date. It was the largest granulation plant expansion in the United States in 30 years, and included converting the New Wales dual-train plant to MicroEssentials, Mosaic’s market-leading premium phosphate product, and granular monoammonium phosphate production.

Hatch executed the project in partnership with a team of dedicated Mosaic staff. We were responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction management services from the prefeasibility study through to commissioning.

The project was a resounding success. There were zero lost-time incidents with more than 1.2 million hours worked and the project was delivered 10 percent under budget. The east granulation plant exceeded its production design capacity two week after start up and the west granulation plant has also exceeded its designed capacity.

Work between Hatch and Mosaic has continued on a number of other Mosaic projects, including K1, K2, and K3.
