Metso Outotec said it is expanding its service centers in Antofagasta, Chile, and Arequipa, Peru, to meet mining customers’ growing needs for servicing large and heavy equipment.
The OEM is investing EUR 13 million into increasing lifting capacity and machining capabilities. After the expansions, the centers will be able to repair and refurbish large HRC and HPGR, Vertimill grinding technology, and HIG mills for mining customers.
“Investing in the expansions in the key mining areas in South America demonstrates our commitment to our customers,” said Eduardo Nilo, president, South America market area, Metso Outotec.
“We can offer shorter lead times and with the performance center capabilities included in our service portfolio, we can also offer preventive maintenance and improved safety for our customers’ equipment.”
The expansions are expected to be ready during the first half of 2024.
