Why consider Life Cycle Services for mining

What is LCS for mining

Life Cycle Services takes our entire aftermarket portfolio and conveniently bundles them into customizable, easily manageable packages. Depending on the scale of your needs, our packages are flexible and equipped to cover a single-event or to span multiple years, measured against strict KPIs.

Whether acting as a supplement to your team, or managing all aspects of your maintenance and operations, LCS packages are designed to help you meet your performance and sustainability goals.

How it works

Metso has been offering innovative LCS solutions for over 15 years, and no one solution has looked the same. We collaborate closely and design a program that works for you. This can focus on a specific goal or developing a partnership based on continuous improvement and optimization of your sites performance and sustainability. 

For added simplicity, we've categorized LCS into four progressive packages, each building on one another, yet still personalized to your needs. Additionally, each package is backed by flexible commercial models including monthly payments, cost-per-ton, or payment deferrals.
