Various Engineering Disciplines Repairing the Sinkhole

Engineers solve problems. They use special skills, learned knowledge and hands on expertise to identify and implement solutions. Whether you are constructing a bridge, a tunnel or repairing a sinkhole – it’s important to have the right people onsite to get the job done safely and efficiently.

Mosaic Fertilizer is fortunate to have some of the brightest minds – electrical engineers, process engineers, project engineers, civil engineers and more – all working together to repair the sinkhole.

Remediation Activities

A Mosaic Fertilizer civil engineer is the project manager for the remediation activities on the gypstack. Civil engineers are trained to deal with the design, construction, and maintenance of built structures, making them the ideal personnel to oversee the sinkhole repairs, including the earth work, drilling and grouting, while accounting for safety and compliance with regulatory standards.

Electrical and Instrumentation

At New Wales, the electrical engineers are responsible for designing, installing and maintaining the electrical and instrumentation systems onsite. Among other roles, the electrical engineers at New Wales managed the design, installation and ongoing operation of the electrical components in the recovery well, including the recovery well pump motor, flow meters and other components.

Water Treatment

Process engineers design and optimize various processes. Project engineers schedule, prepare and plan projects, procure needed resources and supervise construction. Mosaic Fertilizer’s process and project engineers worked together to design the treatment and distribution system, and identify and coordinate the vendors to build the system.

These engineers only represent a portion of the professionals working daily to repair the sinkhole safely and effectively. Mosaic Fertilizer is very proud to have such committed and skilled team members working together to address complex engineering challenges.
