FLSmidth receives copper order in Peru

PRESS RELEASE FLSmidth has signed a contract with Chinese-owned Minera Chinalco Peru for equipment for its Toromocho copper mine in the Morococha mining district about 140 kilometres east of Lima, the capital of Peru. The contract value is expected to be worth in excess of USD 30m (DKK 150m). FLSmidth is to provide detailed engineering and design, as well as manufacture and delivery of equipment, including two overland conveyors, seven in-plant conveyors, and two belt feeders. The overland conveyor will be one of the most complex conveyors in the world. It will be 5.2 kilometres in length and have 9 MW of installed power. The conveyor will have complex vertical and horizontal curves and can demand or regenerate power depending on loading conditions. "Peru continues to be one of the most active minerals areas in the world and FLSmidth has a long time presence in the country. FLSmidth owned Conveyor Engineering has been providing material handling solutions in Peru since the mid 1990's and has supplied some of the largest systems in the country. The conveyor solution included in this order consists of cutting-edge technology and know-how - making it one of the most complex conveyors yet," Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments. The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until the last equipment has been supplied in late 2010. ------------------------------------- Please address any questions regarding this announcement to Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen, FLSmidth & Co.
