Reducing water is a key focus area for the customer and one of the key reasons for choosing FLSmidth’s dry grinding technologies. The order includes two dry grinding mills, a wet grinding ball mill as well as high efficiency air separators, hydrocyclones and pumps.

“Sustainable mining is not only a matter of reducing CO2 emissions,” says Mikko Keto, CEO of FLSmidth. “Reducing water usage in mineral processing stands at the forefront of technologies requested by miners, particularly in water stressed regions and where downstream processing also is dry. This order confirms both our broad, market-leading position within dry grinding as well as supports our MissionZero ambition.”

The equipment is due to be delivered during 2025.
