“The Mouat Company designed our latest barite plant in Larose, Louisiana, to replace a facility that was more than 40 years old. Although the site presented some significant challenges, they completed the design and installation of equipment with a high degree of technical expertise. The plant has met all of our expectations. The design of the facility is streamlined such that it is energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Their performance on this job led us to turn to Mouat for the design and construction of our latest mineral processing facility.“
