:: allmineral Machines for Indian Pellet Site

allmineral has won another major contract - and it is another success for the cooperation of the Duisburg processing specialists with Indian Machine manufacturers Hari Machines Ltd.: together with its Indian partner, the allmineral experts will be delivering two allflux®-fluidised bed separators and three gaustec® high-intensity magnetic separators to the Brahmani River Pellets Limited.

The plants are to have a key role: they are to be the main components of a new processing plant for the production of pellet feed in the Indian steel and ore centre Orissa. “It represents the next step for allmineral on the Indian market, which confirms our global strategy and our choice of partners on the international markets," says Dr. Heribert Breuer, allmineral’s CEO in Duisburg.

Brahmani River Pellets Limited, a subsidiary of the British Stemcor Group, is looking to use the processing facilities as an efficient first-step in the pellet production. Both allflux®-1500 have a throughput of around 800 tonnes of iron ore per hour from 0 to 2 mm; the three gaustec®-3600 will upgrade a total of 600 tonnes of iron ore per hour between 0 to 1 mm. In total, the allmineral machines will process around 4 million tonnes of iron ore per year.

By using the Duisburg machines, the Indian company will be in the position to produce high-quality pellet feed from fine low grade iron ore. It will also give Brahmani River Pellets Limited the chance to make optimal use of its own iron ore reserves with low iron content.

According to current plans, the Brahmani plant will be starting production no later than 2011. The installation of the complex plant in three local sites was facilitated by a contract with the Indian local authorities. The total investment volume for the Stemcor subsidiary is around EUR 220 million.

In addition to the processing plant, the 4 million tonnes per year pelletization plant is under construction and will be fed with the concentrate from the allmineral equipment over a 200-km pipeline. The ultra-modern plant will be the first of its type in the Indian state Orissa; it will contribute to cover the growing demands of the steel industry with local raw material and concurrently create some 350 jobs.
