Finland’s Metso Snaps up Russia Mill Linings Order

Finnish industrial machinery company Metso has won a contract for the supply of SAG and ball mill linings for the upcoming facilities of Russian Copper Company’s (RCC) Tominsky Processing Plant, IM-Mining reports.

The deal complements two earlier mill lining contracts for RCC’s Mikheevsky Processing Plant, signed in December 2019.

With a combined value of around $27 million, the three orders have been booked for Metso’s Q1/2020 (Tominsky) and Q4/2019 (Mikheevsky) orders received. First shipments started already in March 2020. Metso’s deliveries will cover almost one year’s worth of mill lining needs as part of an RCC’s large-scale mill lining project that it is now bringing successfully to completion.

“We managed to meet the tight delivery schedule required to ensure the smooth operation of RCC’s production facilities,” says Alexey Muzychkin, Metso Senior Vice President in Russia and CIS. “We look forward to continuing the long partnership that we have with RCC.”

“Russian Copper Company implements the best available technologies at its operations, as well as installs equipment from the world’s leading manufacturers. For this reason, Metso is our longtime reliable partner in implementing the most ambitious projects,” said the company’s president Vsevolod Levin.
