Sirius Minerals

RED is working in collaboration with AVK on the state of the art Sirius Minerals mining project - supporting construction of the mine and large-scale production, creating thousands of jobs and a boost to the local and national economy.
Located near Whitby, North Yorkshire the mine will target the extraction of polyhalite, a unique multi-nutrient fertilizer. The project area contains the largest, highest grade resource of polyhalite to be found anywhere in the world.

RED together with AVK are providing design, supply, installation and testing of battery energy storage systems (BESS) to power the mine construction and operation plant. RED is providing technical design for the BESS package and sitewide power scenario modelling.

Key Facts

The infrastructure development includes:

  • Sinking the mineshafts at Woodsmith to access the Polyhalite deposit and at Lockwood Beck to facilitate transportation to port
  • Developing a 37 kilometre-long underground mineral transport system (MTS)
  • A materials handling facility (MHF) in Teesside for granulating the mined material into the final product
  • Harbour facilities comprising an approximately 3.5 kilometre-long overland conveyor, a ship berth and a ship loader located adjacent to the harbour on the River Tees”
