Metso Outotec will deliver multiple energy-efficient Vertimill VTM-3000 stirred mills to Ferrexpo in Ukraine. These vertical grinding mills will be the largest of their kind to be installed in Ukraine.
Once the mills have been installed, Ferrexpo’s iron ore beneficiation complex will be the largest VTM installation on the continent. Typical value for this type of an order is in the range of EUR 30 to 40 million, depending on the scope of delivery. The order has been booked in Minerals’ Q2/2021 orders received.
Vertimill technology is part of Metso Outotec’s Planet Positive offering. It provides the lowest total cost of ownership compared to other grinding mills in many applications thanks to its high energy efficiency, reduced media consumption, low installation cost as well as minimal liner wear and maintenance.
It is capable of handling feed sizes of up to 6mm and grinding to product sizes of 30 microns or less. Vertimill is available in standard mill sizes ranging from 15HP (11kW) to 4500HP (3352kW).
