ThyssenKrupp to supply EUR 30 million IPCC System to Russia

ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions has received a contract from Apatit, a subsidiary of the leading Russian fertilizer producer PhosAgro, to supply a complete in-pit crushing and conveying (IPCC) system for an apatite-nepheline ore mine. The mine is located near the city of Kirovsk on the Kola Peninsula in northern Russia. The order is worth around EUR 30 million.

ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions is to supply an entire in-pit crushing and conveying system for an apatite-nepheline ore mine located in northern Russia.

Dr. Sven Müller-Rinke, Managing Director, ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions (RUS): “This will be the first in-pit crushing reference based on our technology in Russia and a good example of how our customers benefit from the worldwide integration of our plant technology business, recently also successfully implemented in Russia. For example, now we can offer them systems for the exploitation of raw materials as well as plants for further processing, such as fertilizer production plants, from a single source.”

Thomas Jabs, Head of Mining Systems within the Resource Technologies business unit of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions: “The switch to the new semi-mobile system is expected to lead to a significant decrease in truck haulage in the Kirovsk mine. Thus, our customer will profit not only from a substantial reduction in operating and maintenance costs as well as lower CO2 emissions but also from a higher level of safety during operation.”

The contract awarded to ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions includes engineering, procurement, construction supervision and commissioning of the complete IPCC system to remove overburden and expose phosphate seams. The company will supply a semi-mobile crusher, three belt conveyors and a spreader system with a total capacity of 31 million tpa. The delivery time for the system amounts to 24 months.

The overburden will be fed directly to a semi-mobile crusher at the edge of the mine and reduced to conveyable size. A curved belt conveyor system with a curve radius of 2500 m will then transport the crushed material almost four kilometers to the 6200 tph spreader for dumping of overburden.
