:: High-efficiency Solutions as Outokumpu Technology Wins Again at Frontier Copper

Outokumpu Technology has won yet another major order for First Quantum Mineralsí (FQM) Frontier copper mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo, this time for advanced high rate thickening and high-efficiency flotation technology.

The contract for SUPAFLO® thickeners, a SkimAirTM 500 unit and TankCell® flotation cells follows a worldwide string of successes earlier this year, including a 32 ft diameter, 20 ft long SAG mill with 12,000kW of installed power - again at Frontier. Frontierís trunnion-supported SAG mill is one of the largest dual pinion variable speed drives for a SAG mill in the world.

As with the mills, the new floats and thickeners will be compatible with the same advanced and proven Outokumpu Technology design as those in FQMís nearby Kansanshi copper and gold mine in Zambia, where last year Outokumpu Technology delivered a second technology package for that project.
