27.02.2014 / Metso: Flexible production and reliable performance

Aggregates producer Franzefoss is upgrading capacity on its existing Steinskogen quarry site outside of Oslo/Norway to meet its long term growth targets. Metso's fully automated crushing stages will allow flexible operations and scaling of the production to meet market demand. The value of the order will not be published. The new crushing and screening installation includes the design, fabrication, installation and commissioning for secondary and tertiary aggregate production. In addition to the fully automated crusher and screening installation to monitor and ease the control of the operation, the new plant will be equipped with an automated truck loading station. Full production is scheduled for March 2015.


The new secondary crushing plant system is targeted at 375 t/h and will include one HP400 cone crusher and two TS5.2 screens to produce ballast railway and end-products of 4/16 and 16/32 basalt aggregate. The tertiary stage, which relies on two HP4 cone crushers and two TS4.2 screens, will produce several fractions destined for concrete and asphalt use. Conveyors and all ancillaries will ensure the handling and the storage of the material. The order has been included in Metso Mining and Construction's Q4 2013 orders received.
