Teko Mining in Serbia improves product quality and production capacity by implementing Metso's crushing and screening solutions

Metso Corporation press release September 6, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. EEST

Teko Mining, Serbia's largest aggregates producer has selected Metso to provide crushing and screening equipment for two of their quarries in Serbia. Estimated to be operational somewhere in September, the new solutions will significantly increase production capacity, reduce waste, and improve end-product quality.

Teko Mining has four quarries almost fully equipped with Metso solutions. With a production capacity of about three million tons per year these quarries produce various stone materials for the development and construction of infrastructure in Serbia. After the commissioning of the new Metso crushing and screening equipment, the Straževica quarry plant capacity, with final products ranging from 0-4 to 32-63 mm, will increase to around 300 metric tons per hour.

"Teko Mining has quarries where many Metso units are already in operation and we have been highly satisfied with the equipment and after-sales support Metso has delivered," says Uros Veljic, General Manager at Teko Mining. "To be able to meet our customers' needs in terms of product quality and capacity, we turned to Metso to come up with an optimal solution."

"Today, our quarries operate in three shifts and we face challenges to produce enough material to meet the demand. With the new plant, we will be able to produce the required volumes running in a single shift. In addition to the higher quarry outputs, we will be able to reduce waste and produce higher quality aggregates," Veljic continues.

The new Metso crushing and screening plant being delivered to Teko Mining's Straževica quarry consists of a Premier CVB202P(TM) inclined screen, a NW1213(TM) portable impact crusher and 2 NW2060(TM) portable screening plants. In addition, the delivery included a Barmac B6150SE on skids, dedusting equipment, steel structures and conveyors. Teko's Ceramide operations will be upgraded with two new Premier CVB(TM) screens.

The value of the order is EUR 2.4M and it has already been booked in Metso's Q4 2016 orders received.
