The concentrator plant has a targeted production of premium pellet feed. The total value of the order is approximately EUR 45 million, and it has been booked in Minerals’ Q2/2022 orders received.
Planet Positive comminution circuit concept
The comminution circuit flowsheet developed for the new concentrator plant in cooperation with Metso Outotec represents the most sustainable technology currently available. Conventional horizontal mills have been replaced with the combination of HRC™e high pressure grinding rolls and Vertimill® grinding mills to achieve the best energy-efficiency with the lowest operating and life cycle costs.
By utilizing this flowsheet, the plant is expected to save 25% of installed power compared to a conventional HPGR/ball mill circuit and over 40% compared to a conventional SABC circuit.
Metso Outotec’s scope of delivery consists of the engineering, manufacturing, and supply of SuperiorTM MKIII Primary Crusher, HP SeriesTM cone crushers, HRC™e HPGR high pressure grinding rolls, vibrating feeders as well as banana, horizontal and dewatering screens and Vertimill® grinding mills. In addition, Metso Outotec will provide installation and commissioning advisory services and wear and spare parts.
“Metso Outotec is honored to be chosen to deliver these state-of-the-art comminution technologies. The plant’s Planet Positive comminution flowsheet combines the best solutions available, allowing to achieve superior energy-efficiency and lower wear rates” says Christoph Hoetzel, Head of Grinding business line at Metso Outotec.
“This is a remarkable project and Metso Outotec will play a significant role also in the project start-up with its strong local operations and highly skilled service team,” says Fernando Samanez, Vice President, Minerals Sales, South America market area at Metso Outotec.
