The Woodsmith Project is a deep mine and associated transport, processing, and shipping infrastructure development under construction in North Yorkshire, UK.
Polyhalite ore will be extracted via two mine shafts and transported outside of the National Park to Teesside on a conveyer belt system in an underground tunnel, avoiding any impact on the countryside above. It will then be granulated at a material handling facility, with the majority being exported to overseas markets.
Fides Oak® will provide support to the Woodsmith Mine site, utilising their High Performing Team methodology and approach to help the team to deliver the goals of the Woodsmith Project.
Eddie McCullough, Managing Director at Fides Oak® said, “I am delighted to announce this contract with Anglo American on one of the largest construction projects in the UK. Fides Oak passionately believes in creating High Performance Teams and Cultures, delivered through people. Our proprietary HPT™ Assessment & Management System tools, together with the Fides Oak Team’s skills and experience, will enhance the High Performing Team culture at the Woodsmith Project.”
Troy Whittaker, Project Director at the Woodsmith Mine said “The team at our Woodsmith Mine site is entering a critical new phase for the Project as we get set to launch into deep shaft sinking. We partnered with Fides Oak® to help embed the consistent and sustainable High Performing Team culture that’s required throughout this phase and beyond.”
