E‌ngineering Dobersek in Germany and Severniy Mining and Processing (SevGOK) in Ukraine have selected Metso Outotec’s mill discharge pumps for Severniy’s greenfield process waste thickening plant. Metso Outotec’s high-capacity pumps will be used to pump the iron ore concentrate plant’s waste sludge into the settling ponds from the thickeners. The 22 pumps to be delivered by Metso Outotec include 10 large high-capacity MDM700 pumps. Together, the pumps are capable of handling a total volume of 117 500 m3 of waste sludge per hour.
