The order covers complete provision of an entire section of the plant's production line. This entails the engineering, supply and commissioning of copper-gold-magnetite separation and dewatering equipment for a 10Mt/y-capacity concentrator. 

Flotation cells, gravity concentrators, magnetic separators, pumps, cyclones, regrind mills, thickeners and filters, and a complete plant automation system will all be supplied.    

"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,” said Manfred Schaffer, vice president of FLSmidth’s minerals division. 

“By supplying this full minerals processing solution with all the core equipment, we are able to guarantee the performance of the complete processing island. We experience that 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.”
