The Cheetham Salt Limited, Price Manufacturing Facility is situated on St. Vincent’s Gulf, approximately 140km north-west of Adelaide, SA. This operation includes a sea water fed, solar salt field and the largest manufacturing site within the Cheetham Salt network. This site commenced operations in 1919.

SCOPE

The site produces a range of products for segments, such as food manufacturing, retail, export food markets, animal feed and industrial applications. Packaging size ranges from smaller packs through to larger packs, between 10kg and 25kg through to bulk bags. This site supplies a growing export market with on-site container loading capacity and shipping via the Port of Adelaide.

Project Resilience will see the Price site transform into one of the biggest and best Salt Refineries in the Southern Hemisphere. The upgrades will enable the site to focus on increasing production of Food Grade quality salt. This project will see the Price site become fit for the future, and a sustainable business for another 100 years.

We supplied a conveyor stacker and installation works for an optical sorter, drive & crusher rolls replacement, seawater pipe upgrade and maintenance activities.
