Metso Corporation company has sold world's biggest mobile crushing plant to Kazakhstan, the company reported on Friday.

"Metso will supply world's biggest fully mobile, track-mounted crushing plant to Altay Polimetally LLP copper mine in Kazakhstan," the company said.

The giant mobile jaw plant will be used at primary crushing stage at Altay Polimetally's new open pit mine, situated in the Karagandy region. Metso's mobile crushing equipment to Kazakhstan will be delivered within the last quarter of 2013. The order is included in Mining and Construction's second quarter 2012 orders received.

The contract also includes large mobile feeding and conveying systems to move the crushed copper ore for further processing, and installation supervision and training. The complete value of the order exceeds 11 million euros.

The giant jaw plant saves environment and costs by decreasing dump truck traffic at an open pit copper mine.

"Today, open pit mines are studying globally the possibility to save costs and environment at primary crushing and conveying stages by decreasing on-site ore trucking. With Metso's large scale, fully mobile equipment, we can well meet this customer demand," Business manager, In-pit crushing solutions from Metso Jorma Kempas said.

Metso is Finnish company focusing on mining and construction, automation and pulp, paper and power.
