Weir Minerals delivers slurry pumps for cutter dredgers

The slurry pumps and spare parts are for two new Van Oord cutter dredgers - the Athena and Artemis. Van Oord has more than 150 Weir Minerals pumps operating worldwide.

Weir Minerals moved its sales and service centre from Venlo to Nederweert in the Netherlands earlier this year.

Tony Locke, managing director of Weir Minerals Europe, said: “Our new centre in Nederweert is a key hub from which we can support a wide variety of mineral processing or slurry handling industries across the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. It is essential in supporting our expansion both geographically and outside of our core mining customer base.”
