September 11 - UTi Worldwide is joining forces with Sedgman to transport a mineral processing plant from China to the USA.

The plant, which has a combined weight of 10,000 tonnes, will be shipped in sections to New Jersey and assembled in early 2016.

When complete, the modular wet concentrator plant will be capable of processing 232 tonnes of heavy mineral sands per hour, to produce a concentrate of zircon and ilmenite ready for downstream separation and processing.

UTi explained that this project award follows the successful completion of another project for Sedgman in Australia last month.
