FLSmidth has received a US$39.7 million (DKK 270 million) order for several grinding mills to be implemented at a northern Chile copper mine.
While the customer was not identified, the company said the order will expand the mine’s grinding capacity alongside its already successful line-up of FLSmidth technology.
The order, booked in Q2 2023, will be delivered during 2024. It includes a SAG mill and two Ball mills plus site assistance and start-up supervision.
The mills will utilise gearless mill drives for energy efficiency in support of the company’s MissionZero ambition and build on successful performance of previous mills installed at the site.
“This new order secures our customer reliable production with a state-of-the-art milling technology that combines efficiency with energy savings and long-lasting quality. While this order supports our ambition of enabling zero emission mining by 2030, it also underpins FLSmidth’s clear, market leading position within large grinding mills,” said CEO Mikko Keto.
