:: FLSmidth Receives Large Maintenance Contract in Chile


FLSmidth has won a five-year contract worth approximately 190m USD from Minera Los Pelambres to supply maintenance services for their copper and molybdenum plant in central Chile. Minera Los Pelambres is owned by AMSA - Antofagasta Minerals.

The contract is a five-year extension of FLSmidth's current maintenance contract that dates back to the turn of the century. All major process equipment at the plant has been supplied by FLSmidth, starting in the late 1990's and with subsequent additions in 2003-2007. The Pelambres plant processes around 175,000 tonnes of primary and secondary copper ore per day.

The maintenance contract will secure 455 jobs. It is awarded to FLSmidth as a consequence of the strong performance, high throughput and reliability achieved through continued focus on health and safety, reliability and availability of the equipment - and last but not least the successful cooperation between the parties involved.
