Mardie Salt and Potash


BCI Mineral’s Mardie Salt and Potash Project is a large-scale, multi-generational solar evaporation operation on the Pilbara Coast of Western Australia. It will be the third largest salt mine in the world.

The Viking solution

Viking Industrial provided a complete turn-key package to power the newly expanded 400-bed camp, along with numerous other power needs across the site. We supplied 4 x 450kVA prime generators, a 30,000L fuel system for the main camp, a 100kVA standby unit for a critical admin building, and 2 x 20kVA generators to an on-site contractor for the bore fields site. In addition to the purchased generators, Viking supplied several rental generators, distribution boards and fuel storage for temporary power on site.

Following our success with the camp, another existing contractor engaged us to supply the Power Generation Compound for the Seawater Intake Pump Station. Viking provided 4 x 650kVA Prime and 1 x 130kVA generators to pump seawater into various evaporation ponds. Viking’s site presence is continuously growing, being engaged by BCI Minerals directly to complete routine servicing/maintenance of the camp generators.

“We recently purchased a fleet of Solar Trailers with a set expectation and design requirement for our remote site requirements. The team at Viking worked with us to complete the specification and orders. The fleet has been on the job for around three months now, meeting our requirements. We are looking at more units currently with the team and look forward to continued supply in the future.”
