Metso Outotec has been awarded a contract to deliver sustainable grinding technology to an iron ore project producing premium pellet feed in South America. The total value of the order exceeds EUR 10 million, and it has been booked in Minerals’ Q2/2022 orders received.
Metso Outotec’s scope of delivery consists of the engineering, manufacturing and supply of four Vertimill® vertical grinding mills. In addition, Metso Outotec will provide installation and commissioning advisory services. The Planet Positive Vertimill® grinding mills are expected to save more than 30% of the installed power compared to a conventional ball mill circuit.
“We are pleased that our customer has chosen the industry-leading Vertimill® technology. The regrinding circuit will enable energy-efficient grinding combined with low operating and life-cycle costs,” says Christoph Hoetzel, Head of the Grinding business line at Metso Outotec.
