FLSmidth delivering ball mills, HPGRs to South American site

Following a long-standing relationship with an unidentified customer, FLSmidth confirmed it has received an order to supply comminution technologies to a leading copper miner in South America for their new greenfield concentrator.

The order is valued at approximately DKK 380 million and was booked in Q124. The equipment is due to be delivered in 2025.

The order includes the delivery of two ball mills and three High Pressure Grinding Rolls (HPGR); the latter is well known to be among the most energy-efficient comminution technologies, as it lowers power consumption while providing a more stable grinding operation and eliminating the need for grinding media.

FLSmidth has supplied most of the equipment for the customer’s original concentrator as well as provided maintenance, spare parts and process support services over the years.

“Receiving new orders from existing customers is always confirmation of a healthy and strong customer relationship. And it is particularly satisfying in this case as the customer is purchasing their first HPGRs and have selected our market leading technology,” CEO Mikko Keto said.
