Metso has signed an 18-month services contract with Codelco's Chuquicamata mine. Codelco is the biggest state-owned enterprise in Chile and the world's largest producer of copper.

The contract covers changing the components to 33 ball mills currently operating in the A0 and A1 plants in the Codelco Chuquicamata mine. The work will involve changing the pinion-gear assembly as well as repairs to the shell. Metso will repair two mills per month and also take care of the continuous monitoring of the status of the equipment. The value of the new contract will not be disclosed.

"Codelco chose Metso due to our expertise in similar type of projects. Metso's specialized, high-quality services are focused on optimization and improved reliability of the mills. As a result, the customer will gain the desired return on their investment", states Eduardo Nilo, Services Director for Metso's Mining and Construction in Chile.

The agreement, which covers gear disassembly, new gear assembly, pinion assembly, gear alignment (slow rotation) and mantle repair, will take effect in April 2014. The contract will create 30 new Metso services jobs in the Northern part of Chile. The order has been included in Metso Mining and Construction's Q1 2014 orders received.
