Metso announced it will supply a tandem rotary railcar dumper to Hamersley Iron Pty Ltd. with delivery going to Hamersley Iron’s Cape Lambert, Port B iron ore operation in Western Australia. The order—value of which was not disclosed—also includes spare parts, technical assistance during installation, pre-commissioning, commissioning and performance testing.

Metso said the design of the equipment allows for lower maintenance and higher, more efficient material output flow, and ease and safety of maintenance is also improved through a reduction of overall components.

Delivery is scheduled for the second quarter of 2013.
