Metso awarded orders for a gyratory crusher and a major apron feeder package in the Americas
Metso has been awarded orders for a gyratory crusher and apron feeders including related services and spare parts to support a mining customer project in the Americas. The value of the orders is approximately EUR 20 million, of which 80% were booked in Minerals segment’s first-quarter orders received and the balance in Minerals segment’s second quarter.
Metso’s scope of delivery includes an impressive apron feeder package featuring Metso’s AF18 apron feeder, one of the largest feeders that Metso has ever produced.
