FLSmidth has been chosen to supply a new gold processing plant to JSC Pavlik in Russia. The order, valued at around DKK 290 million, has become effective and will be booked in 1Q20. The planned 7 million tpy plant will operate alongside the successful processing plant supplied by FLSmidth in 2013-14.
FLSmidth will supply equipment across the complete flowsheet, including materials handling, flotation, gravity concentrators, screens, gold leaching, dewatering, pumps, cyclones, valves, instruments and reagent systems. The order also includes a complete plant electrical and automation package.
The contract follows the successful partnership with JSC Pavlik for Line 1, for which FLSmidth designed and supplied all the main process equipment. This single-source approach for the original plant proved successful for the customer, and the new order reflects their satisfaction.
Manfred Schaffer, Mining President, FLSmidth, commented: “The company is delighted to receive this order from JSC Pavlik and the Arlan Group […] Receiving a repeat order with a prominent miner reflects the importance that FLSmidth puts on the development of state-of-the-art mining equipment and into maintaining a close partnership with customers throughout the full lifecycle of a mine. The order is a clear indication of the customer’s satisfaction with FLSmidth as the single-source supplier of the original gold processing plant and the dedication to delivering productivity to the market.”
Artyom Bolshakov, Vice President of JSC Pavlik, added: "JSC Pavlik want to thank FLSmidth’s team for the hard, detailed work that was completed throughout the timeline of the order. The company is familiar with FLSmidth's equipment since the start of Pavlik and trust the quality and transparency.”
FLSmidth was awarded the engineering contract in 2019 and, following this new contract, the equipment supply will begin in 4Q20. The plant is expected to commence operation in late 2021 or early 2022.
