During the first quarter of 2017, Metso signed three new long-term maintenance contracts with major mining companies in the Pacific Rim region. Through these new Life Cycle Services (LCS) contracts, Metso will provide improvements in the availability of equipment to meet production targets and reduce maintenance costs in mining operations. Equivalent to 13.9 million €, the new contracts have been booked to Metso’s Q1 2017 orders received. Metso’s Life Cycle Services include the entire range of Metso services bundled into tailored, easily manageable packages. These service packages can span multiple years and are measured against strict key performance indicators.
