Bauer rig moves into position for potash work

btl ypm approved for pr

Bauer has started work on the first of five circular diaphragm wall shafts for the new £2.2bn Sirius Minerals potash mine in North Yorkshire.

Release of images showing one of Bauer’s BC40 cutter diaphragm wall rigs on site with the project team follows on from the company’s announcement that it had secured the work late last month.

Bauer will use three BC40 rigs to construct the shafts that vary in depth from 60m to 120m.

The shafts are part of the new mine development which extract one of the world’s largest and highest quality reserves of potash, which is also known as polyhalite, for fertiliser.
