Metso's unique design meets high product requirements
The Aggregates made sure that the plant was set up right from the start with zero-level difference, keeping the Metso design intact, to ensure smooth operations, continuous production and consistent quality. Out of the total production, i.e. 40,000-50,000 tons per month, two-thirds of the production was consumed internally by The Aggregates internal companies and subsidiaries, with the remaining production sold to other big players in the industry.
Producing seven product variations from one plant is always a daunting task and a concern for many players in the industry. Operating in a region where irrigation and roads projects were ongoing simultaneously, it was essential for The Aggregates to be able to deliver multiple product variations. They evaluated several options available to them and finally settled with Metso in order to be able to deliver on this varied demand for aggregates. Mr. Arun Sarkar, Director, The Aggregates, Odisha, shared, “We opted for a modular plant because our product requirements were high, and we had our own land available to set up the plant.” He added, “We modified the layout as per Metso’s compact design and the plant was set up with the Metso design intact. This design allowed for the plant to be set up with up to zero-level difference, so there is no stoppage in production under any circumstances.”
