FLSmidth signed a contract with BIS Industries to supply material handling equipment to the iron ore mine in Australia owned by Gindalbie Metals.The contract comprises an iron ore tailings stacking system including a mobile stacking system with a capacity of 2850 tonnes per hour.

Valby, Denmark – FLSmidth has signed a contract worth approximately USD 50 million (approx. DKK 270 million) with BIS Industries, a company of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR), to supply material handling equipment to the iron ore mine owned by Gindalbie Metals Ltd some 200 kilometres east of Geraldton, Western Australia.

The contract comprises an iron ore tailings stacking system including a Rahco mobile stacking system with a capacity of 2850 tonnes per hour. The technology which FLSmidth provides introduces a process that enables dewatered tailings material to be conveyed and stacked rather than pumped. This process allows the client to utilize a smaller footprint, decrease environmental exposure, re-use much of their process water and reduce operating costs.
