FLSmidth to supply overland conveyor system

FLSmidth has been chosen to supply an overland conveyor (OLC) for a large, established copper-gold mine in Southeast Asia, which follows a large equipment order from the same customer earlier in 2022. The pit-to-plant conveying system, which is over 5 km in length, has gearless drive technology. The conveyor order follows the Q1 2022 announcement that FLSmidth had been chosen to supply two gearless SAG mills, two gearless ball mills and thickener technology to the same site. This new FLSmidth overland conveyor will deliver the ore from the pit to the new FLSmidth SAG and ball mills at the process plant. The conveying system, part of the newly acquired tk Mining portfolio, is expected to deliver a significant reduction of OPEX due to its gearless drive technology, which uses less energy, and results in less maintenance and higher availability during operations. The order supports FLSmidth’s MissionZero ambition to enable customers to mine in a more sustainable manner. Overland conveyors significantly reduce the need for diesel-powered truck fleets on mine site and makes material transportation more cost-effective and resource efficient.
