FINLAND - OUTOKUMPU TECHNOLOGY has won several new grinding mill contracts in Sweden, Chile, South Africa and Australia. Together, the contracts are worth Є30 million (approximately Cdn$42.8 million).
The largest of these contracts is with LKAB KIRUNA, a Swedish iron ore mining company investing in a new concentrator and a new pelletizing plant, which are designed to produce 6 million tonnes of pellets/year. Outokumpu will supply five grinding mills, a cooling system for mills, spiral classifiers, hydrocyclone clusters and two thickeners. Outokumpu will install all this equipment by mid-2007, and the plant is scheduled to start operation in early 2008.
Outokumpu's other new mill contracts include the delivery in the second quarter of 2007 of two ball mills and technical services for COMPAA MINERA DEL PACFICO's Atama iron ore project in Chile; the delivery, installation and commissioning of a large ball mill for the NKOMATI nickel plant in South Africa; and the delivery of a second ball mill for ONESTEEL's Magnet project in Australia.
