Extractive industries are very important for sustainable development. ADFD has contributed to enhancing the exporting capacities of Al Hassa Factory by raising its phosphate production capability from 1.25 million tons to 3.6 million tons annually. Such an increase in production provides significant support to the industrial sector and revitalizes the economy.
The project included the development of three mines and three units that contain grinding, garbling, and drying equipment. It also includes a 20 megawatt power station in addition to water management works and a railway for transporting the final product. The project was completed in 1979.
