FLSmidth has received an order from the Russian minerals producer Norilsk Nickel Group valued at approximately DKK 600 million for the engineering and supply of various bundled equipment for a complete “process island” at the Bystrinskoye copper-magnetite plant. The plant will be located in the Zabaikalsky Kral region in Eastern Siberia, Russia.

The order covers delivery of an entire section of the plant’s production line, entailing the engineering, supply and commissioning of copper-gold-magnetite separation and dewatering equipment for a concentrator with a capacity of 10 million metric tons per year.

The principal equipment to be supplied includes flotation cells, gravity concentrators, magnetic separators, pumps, cyclones, regrind mills, thickeners and filters as well as a complete plant automation system.

“The Russian mining industry continues its expansion and Norilsk Nickel is a well-established player within the industry. The order is based on a close and successful relationship with this customer. By supplying this full minerals processing solution with all the core equipment, we are able to guarantee the performance of the complete processing island. These types of guarantees for comprehensive processing islands are increasingly sought after by our customers in the mining industry as a way to ensure optimal productivity and single source responsibility,” said Group Executive Vice President of the Minerals Division Manfred Schaffer.
