Metso Outotec signs global partnership agreement with FAM for providing IPCC and tailings management plant projects

Metso Outotec Corporation’s press release on June 29, 2021, at 09:30 a.m. EEST

Metso Outotec and FAM GmbH have signed a global non-exclusive cooperation agreement on the delivery of integrated end-to-end solutions for in-pit crush and convey (IPCC) and tailings management plants to the mining industry. The combination of the companies’ leading expertise in their respective fields will allow the parties to form the markets’ strongest offering for IPCC and tailings management plants.

Mine electrification, reduction in power and water consumption as well as de-risking tailings disposal are common goals for the mining industry and Metso Outotec to improve sustainability. State-of-the-art IPCC and tailings management plants cater for these requirements.

”Sustainability is a top priority for Metso Outotec. In addition to our investments to develop our IPCC and tailings management plant offering, we are pleased to be able to announce our cooperation with FAM. This will allow us to meet our customers’ growing demand in such plants, where spreaders or conveyor bridges are required,” says Markku Teräsvasara, President of the Minerals business area at Metso Outotec.

”FAM’s leading technology in dry tail stacking systems and spreaders ties well in with Metso Outotec’s hard rock crushing and minerals processing portfolio. Where end-to-end systems are required, we are glad teaming up with a strong partner,” says Torsten Gerlach, CEO of FAM.

Both companies are excited about this new path forward and the possibilities this brings to their customers.
