OCP, the world leader in phosphates, has chosen Bedeschi once again as material handling partner for a new project: the Office Cherifién des Phosphates has in fact decided to rely on Bedeschi’s know-how for the EPC supply of three new automated storages: two for fertilizer and one for sulphur, for a global storage capacity of 300 thousand tons of material.
The new equipment will be installed in the chemical complex of Phosboucraa, 30 km from the city of Laayoune, in the Western Sahara region.
The new project has a strategic importance for the development of the industrial axis known as “southern axe”. The supply consists of material handling equipment for the storage of sulphur in import and the storage of fertilizer in export. In particular, the company will supply, among other things, 3 trippers, 3 reclaimers and 6 conveyor belts with capacity of up to 2000 t/h.
The equipment will be similar to the one in the image, already supplied to OCP for the Jorf Lasfar plant in Morocco.
