FLSmidth has secured an order to supply four production lines of grinding equipment, with ancillaries, to a copper mine in the Khabarovsk region of Russia. When operational, the equipment will process a total of 84 million tpy of ore. The order is valued at approximately DKK1700 million and will be booked in 1Q20.
Each of the four lines will consist of a single 40 ft SAG mill with a 28 MW drive and two 28 ft ball mills, each with a 22 MW drive. The SAG mills when installed will be the largest in all of Asia. All drives are gearless motor drives from ABB. Each line will also include an FLSmidth cone crusher solution with digitalisation and s control system. The first production line will be delivered in 2022 and the supply of the subsequent lines will continue throughout 2023.
FLSmidth received the order from the Swiss-based Red Metal.
“We are delighted to confirm this significant order,” commented Manfred Schaffer, Mining President at FLSmidth.
Sustainable and efficient ore extraction in the copper industry is central to our support of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Copper is an essential metal in the creation of a greener, low carbon society; it is a key ingredient in green and clean energy technologies, such as solar panels, electrical vehicles and wind turbines, amongst others.
