:: Larox Wins EUR 19.5 Million Deal to Supply Filters to Minas-Rio System in Brazil

Larox and MMX Minas-Rio Mineracao S.A. have agreed filter deliveries to the Minas-Rio System project. Total value of this so far biggest single contract for Larox is approximately 19.5 million euros and includes several units of large size Ceramec Capillary Action Disc Filters for iron ore filtration. Delivery will be in three phases during the years 2008 and 2009.

The MMX Minas-Rio System has reserves, which may hold up to two billion tons of iron ore, in the state of Minas Gerais. Output of the mine will be transported by the world's largest ore pipeline, sized to carry 26.5 million tons iron ore a year and running some 525 kilometers between the inland ore-beds and the Ašu Port Complex being built on the Rio de Janeiro State coast. The System is expected to start operations during the second half of 2009, when it is expected to handle eight million tons, rising to 20 million tons in 2010 and topping 26 million tons by 2011.
