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
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
The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until
the last equipment has been supplied in late 2010.
