:: Metso is Awarded a Contract with Gécamines for a Full Crushing and Screening Plant Delivery in Senegal


Metso has signed a contract with Gécamines, a subsidiary of the Vicat group, situated in West Africa, for a second complete crushing and screening plant. The order was booked at the end of fourth quarter 2015. The amount is not disclosed.

The order includes the full engineered design and supply of the primary and secondary crushing and screening stations with new crushers and screens. Metso will also integrate the reuse of existing equipment such as tertiary crushers, a secondary screen and conveyors.

Along with the process design and full engineering of the plant, Metso's delivery will include a C125 jaw crusher, an HP300 cone crusher and retrofitting 2 HP200 crushers for the tertiary station to produce 250 t/h of aggregate for the local markets.

This plant design follows French regulations and norms for the quarry industry stressing the importance of dust suppression systems.

This is the second contract that Gécamines awards to Metso. The previous order in 2011 included the process design for a full crushing and screening plant producing 600 t/h for the aggregate industry.
