FLSmidth receives copper order in the Middle East

FLSmidth has been awarded a contract worth 49.5m Euros (approximately DKK 368m) from a company in the Middle East for engineering services and equipment for the expansion of a copper mine.

The scope of the supply for the 7 million tonnes per year capacity copper concentrator includes stockpile feeders, a SAG mill, ball mills, pumps and cyclones, flotation cells, concentrate and tailings thickeners and concentrate filters – comprising a full minerals processing line.

"FLSmidth has a strong position in the global copper industry and this order for a complete process line further underlines the strength of our unique ability to provide a single source of products and service solutions to the copper industry," Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.

The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until mid 2013.
