Metso has won a contract worth €27 million to supply a complete fine crushing and screening system to Norsk Stein in Norway.
Norsk Stein A/S is a subsidiary company of the Scandinavian Stema/Mibau company, a leading producer of aggregates for the concrete and asphalt industries. In addition to owning five of the six largest quarries in Scandinavia, Stema/Mibau also owns and operates 40 terminals and a fleet of self-unloaders.
The Jelsa quarry
Norsk Stein’s Jelsa quarry is located in the Jelsa fjord near Stavanger. Capable of producing 5 million tpa of high quality aggregate used for road building, railways and offshore purposes, the product can be directly loaded via a 2400 tph underground extractor into 100 000 t capacity self-discharging vessels. The quarry has reserves estimated at 350 million t. In order to better utilise these reserves, it is undergoing an expansion that aims to raise production to 10 million tpa. The Metso order forms part of this project.
Metso is to supply a complete fine crushing and screening system to the quarry, scheduled for delivery by June 2010. The order comprises four gyratory cone crushers, eight series inclined screens, a stacker conveyor, and a significant amount of conveyors. It also includes the engineering, erection and project management of the new plant. The order is included in Mining and Construction Technology’s Q3 orders received.
