Delivery value will be $39 million and booked in Outotec’s Q1 2013 intake. Delivery scope consists of six large grinding mills and seven pressure filters while providing installation and start-up services with technological spare parts.

“Energy efficiency and sustainable production are vital factors in today’s investment decisions,” said Jari Rosendal, president of Outotec’s Non-ferrous Solutions business area. “We are happy to provide Grupo Peñoles with a package that enables them to further reduce energy and water usage.”

Filters are expected to be delivered by Q4 2013 and grinding mills by Q2 2014. Grupo Peñoles is a long-term Outotec customer with five grinding mills and 40 Outotec Larox pressure filters with sulphide concentrate applications.
