FLSmidth has signed a contract with Chinese-owned Minera Chinalco Peru for equipment for its Toromocho copper mine in the Morococha mining district about 140 km east of Lima, the capital of Peru. The contract value is expected to be worth in excess of US$ 30 million. FLSmidth is to provide detailed engineering and design, as well as manufacture and delivery of equipment, including two overland conveyors, seven in-plant conveyors, and two belt feeders. The overland conveyor will be one of the most complex conveyors in the world. It will be 5.2 km in length and have 9 MW of installed power. The conveyor will have complex vertical and horizontal curves and can demand or regenerate power depending on loading conditions.
