:: Sandvik to supply crushing stations and conveying system valued at SEK 800M

Sandvik Mining and Construction has reached an agreement with Boliden AB to supply a complete in-pit crushing system to Boliden's Aitik mine. The crushing system consists of two complete primary gyratory crushing stations as well as overland conveyors and feeders. The system will have a capacity of 8,000 tons per day and will transport the extracted ore 7 kilometers. The new crushing and conveying system is scheduled to be put into operation in early 2010.The value of the equipment order is approximately SEK 800 M (EUR 86.5 M).

Boliden's decision to invest in a conveying system reduces the use of truck transports. The conveyor system will provide higher availability, considerably lower running cost and be more environmentally friendly compared with truck transports.

Sandvik's order includes engineering and erection as well as start-up services.

With the new system, Aitik will be able to double its annual production of ore from 18 to 36 million tons.
