Metso to deliver Planet Positive thickeners, filters to Peru mine water treatment project

Metso has been awarded with a contract valued at around €15 million ($16 million) to deliver several thickeners and filters to a mine water treatment project in Peru.

Metso’s scope of delivery includes several high-rate thickeners operating in a high density sludge (HDS) mine water treatment application and automatic EBS series liquid filters with an electric self-cleaning mechanism for ultra-fine filtration.

The thickeners, which are part of Metso’s Planet Positive offering, include the Reactorwell™ feed system and are specially designed bolted stainless-steel construction for high corrosion resistance and fast installation, the company says.

Brian Berger, Vice President, Thickening and Clarification at Metso, said: “We are pleased to continue working with this important customer in Peru to support their needs in mine water treatment with our Planet Positive thickening solutions. The environmentally sound high-rate thickeners will have an important role in ensuring a reliable operation and meeting the customer’s project criteria for high performance, fast installation and low maintenance.”
