The deal complements two earlier mill lining contracts for RCC's Mikheevsky processing plant, which were signed in December 2019.
With a combined value of approximately €24 million (US$26 million), the three orders have been booked for Metso's March 2020 quarter (Tominsky) and December 2019 quarter (Mikheevsky) orders received. The first shipments started in March.
Metso's deliveries will cover almost one year's worth of mill lining needs as part of a RCC's large-scale mill lining project that the company is now bringing successfully to completion.
Alexey Muzychkin, Metso senior vice president in Russia and CIS, said: "We are proud to be part of the construction projects of Russian Copper Company by providing reliable supplies of equipment and spare parts for their plants. We managed to meet the tight delivery schedule required to ensure the smooth operation of RCC's production facilities. We look forward to continuing the long partnership that we have with RCC."
Vsevolod Levin, president of RCC, said: "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 long-time reliable partner in implementing the most ambitious projects. This ensures superior operational performance of our enterprises, as well as the safety of technological processes for human health and environment."
