Outotec has been awarded three grinding mill orders and mill service contracts in the EMEA region. The total value of these orders booked in Outotec's third quarter 2014 order intake is approximately EUR 12 million.
- Outotec will deliver primary and secondary ball mills together with installation and mill services for LKAB's Malmberget iron ore beneficiation plant in Sweden.
- First Quantum Minerals ordered a high intensity grinding mill, the Outotec HIGmill(TM), to be used in a fine grinding application at its Kevitsa copper and nickel mine in Finland.
- Outotec will also deliver a ball mill to Norilsk Nickel's Harjavalta copper and nickel operations in Finland.
The grinding mills will be delivered during 2014 and 2015.
"These are important orders for Outotec in the very competitive market situation we have today. We have long business relations with these three companies and delivered numerous reference plants and equipment to them, which strengthened our position in the bidding. Furthermore, the energy efficiency benefits of our HIGmill technology are superior compared to other mills on the market", says Peter Weber, head of Outotec's EMEA region.
