FLSmidth key supplier for greenfield ­phosphate rock projects

Arianne Phosphate, a Canadian development-stage phosphate mining company, has signed a memorandum of understanding with FLSmidth to provide all production equipment and engineering for their future plant, Lac à Paul, located 650 km north-east of Montreal, covering an area of more than 270 km2 The phosphate processing plant will be designed for a capacity of 55 000 t/d, to produce 3 million t/a of phosphate rock concentrate, grading 38.6 % P2O5, with concentrate P2O5 recovery of 90 %. Brian Ostroff, the CEO of Arianne Phosphate states: “The process of bringing Lac a Paul into development will benefit greatly from FLSmidth’s technological leadership, solid experience in the phosphate industry, and their ability to help ­facilitate financing. Greenfield projects like this requires significant financial backing from several financial partners. With the support of Denmark’s Export Credit Agency (EKF) FLSmidth has been able to open the door to the ­finance community by ensuring the most sustainable technologies with a focus on crucial water and energy resources.” Group Executive Vice President for FLSmidth’s Minerals Division, Manfred Schaffer says: “As a full flowsheet provider on a project of this scale, we can really make a difference by designing a process flow with optimal productivity and the ­lowest total cost of ownership.”
