FLSmidth has won a contract worth about $105 million from Mongolian coal producer Mongolyn Alt (MAK) Group—which is diversifying into the copper sector—to install a concentrator at a copper mine 500 km from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
The order involves delivery of a 40,000-mt/d copper plant using FLSmidth technology, including a Knelson-Deswik fine grinding mills for concentrate regrind. FLSmidth will also supply an automated control system, basic and detailed plant and process engineering and related supervision, start-up and commissioning services.
“Mongolia holds vast deposits of natural resources and being able to deliver state-of-the-art technology, as with this contract, we are able to strengthen our position and footprint in this increasingly important market. Our Mongolian activities will soon be supported by our new Super Service Center under implementation. The winning of the order also reinforces our engagement in the global copper industry and our ability to be the customers’ One Source supplier—an important focus area for FLSmidth,” said Group CEO Jorgen Huno Rasmussen.
