Port of Ventspils, Latvia

HPS was contracted  to participate in the port terminal expansion of KalijaParks, at the time, the third largest potash transshipment facility in the world. The existing terminal had been handling approximately 4.0 million metric tons of potash annually. The project increased throughput to 6.5 million metric tons. Storage capacity was increased by 40000 metric tons with provisions to handle a variety of bulk materials.

HPS designed, manufactured, and provided construction supervision over the entirety of the solids handling equipment including eight 54- inch belt width conveyors each handling 1500 metric tons per hour, twenty-six belt feeders each capable of 500 metric tons per hour, and related structures, transfer buildings, and appurtenances.
