SNC-Lavalin Awards Macrotek Multi-Scrubber Contract
SNC-Lavalin, one of the leading engineering and construction groups in the world, has selected Macrotek Inc. to design and supply wet scrubber systems for a mining and production facility in Saskatchewan, Canada. Macrotek, a leader in the air pollution control industry, will supply four venturi scrubber systems for various services in the first phase of the project.
The underground potash development project is located in east-central Saskatchewan. The mine will be one of the world’s largest potash mines, producing eight million tons of marketable potash annually at full capacity.

Engineering for the wet scrubbers has begun with the project scheduled to start first production in 2015.
