Metso Outotec has announced it has received an order to supply unique sustainable screening technology for an iron ore project in the southern hemisphere

The order value, which is not disclosed, has been booked in Minerals segment?s Q3 2021 orders received. The start-up of the project is scheduled for the H1 2024.

The order for the product screening and scalping application covers 12 Metso Outotec BSE Series (Banana Screen Elliptical) tandem screens and four MF Series screens, all equipped with 305PS screening media. In addition, the contract covers Metrics monitoring system for screens, expert support and installation services. 

The need to reduce water in iron ore production and other minerals processing is a critical global challenge. The innovative and patented BSE Series screens enable iron ore processing even with higher natural moisture content without adding water.

?The elimination of process water ultimately results in lower processing costs, increasing the customer?s competitiveness and profitability in the iron ore global markets,? said Jouni M?h?nen, vice-president, screening business line, Metso Outotec.
