Modern efficient Metso equipment will help the Polar Division of MMC Norilsk Nickel meet strategic target – increase ore processing capacities up to 10 mtpa for all ore types.
Currently the framework of the second start-up complex of Talnakh Enrichment Plant, the Polar Division of MMC Norilsk Nickel, is under construction. Meanwhile there is an installation of new equipment in new complex of rehandling rich and cooper ore, new stepdown substation and high-voltage power transmission line. The modernization also concerns the part of major framework of the plant, where the framework of storing and preparing chemicals is.
The main aim of innovations is to improve reliability of the floatation process with the help of new technologies, because some of the crushing and screening equipment are already exhausted (the age of equipment may come up to 15-16 years). However, it is the capital equipment and down-times of each item lead to failure of a production program of the plant, one of the world’s leaders in mining industry. Consequently a unique semi-autogenous grinding mill will be installed. It is going to combine multiple crushing and milling stages. So far there will be unique for the CIS mills Vertimill, which are capable to grind to products less than 20 microns. Such equipment has never been in Norilsk before.
At the same time “Sever Minerals” installs new mills lining (SAG and ball mills), technical maintenance and repair of two crushing cascades crushing and screening equipment (feeders LH 10-24, magnetic separators, crusher HP700), maintenance and repair of pumping equipment fleet. As a result, the customer can concentrate more on commercial and investment targets and processes of business, providing therefore high quality, expertise and optimal use of resources.
