Weir Minerals secures processing plant pump supply deal

Weir Minerals has been selected to supply pumps and equipment for a new processing plant in Garpenberg/Sweden (Fig.). The new plant is being built by the Swedish mining company Boliden and is a replacement for an existing facility – an upgrade that will double capacity from 1.3 to 2.5 million t of metal ores per year. Weir Minerals will supply the majority of pumps for every application across the plant, requiring a wide range of types and sizes of units to handle the full spectrum of flow rates, pressure requirements and slurry consistencies. Delivery of the units will begin immediately, but installation and commissioning work is scheduled to take place from spring to autumn 2013. The contract follows the launch of Weir’s first service centre in Scandinavia in March 2012, and its acquisition in 2012 of belt-tensioning system manufacturer GEMEX, both of which played a significant part in securing the order.
