New IHC mining order for Arab Potash

Posted on June 5, 2024

We’re proud to announce that IHC Mining has secured a new contract to build and supply a salt harvester for Arab Potash Company (APC). This specialised floating pontoon will be used for harvesting carnallite (potassium salt) in the Dead Sea in Jordan.

This innovative machine will be equipped with four tracks, with the track suspension and steering system optimised for reliability and easy maintenance, ensuring minimal downtime for our client.

In addition, the salt harvester will be fully electric, thus contributing to a smaller carbon footprint and allowing APC to operate in a more sustainable way.

It will be equipped with a 2.1 km long floating pipeline for efficient salt transportation. It will also include a day accommodation with an operator cabin and a sunroof covering the full length of the harvester – which will provide the staff with a nice working environment.

This project symbolises the culmination of Royal IHC’s expertise, with a cross-functional team collaborating to deliver this ground-breaking new product, specifically tailored for APC.
