Gerald Ondrey

Outotec Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.outotec) and the mining and metals company First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (FQML) have agreed on the delivery of an additional three grinding mills to FQML's subsidiaries in Zambia to complement Outotec's previous process equipment deliveries. The total value of the new orders is about €15 million. 

Outotec's delivery includes two ball mills and one SAG mill, all of which are based on Outotec's proprietary grinding mill technology. The largest of the ball mills (8.5-m dia., 13.4-m long with 22 MW power) is equal in size to the largest ball mill ever manufactured The ball mill has a capacity of 25-million metric tons per year and it will be installed at the Kanshanshi mine expansion in Zambia.

The Kansanshi mine is the largest copper mine in Africa, located in the northwest of Zambia. Outotec has previously delivered a substantial amount of the key processing equipment for the Kansanshi mine, including one of the world's largest SAG mills (12.2-m dia., 8.8-m with 28 MW) and three other mills, multiple flotation cells and thickeners. Outotec's deliveries to the Kanshanshi mine alone amount to over €100 million.
