Company Teko Mining Belgrade, the largest stone aggregate producer in Serbia, expects production improvement and better quality of final products, thanks to an investment in new Metso equipment for two quarries - in Straževica and Ćeramide location, it is announced from Company Metso.

Company Teko Mining has four quarries almost fully equipped with Metso solutions. With a production capacity of about 3 million tons per year, these quarries produce various stone materials for the development and construction of infrastructure in Serbia. Thanks to the new Metso crushing and sieving equipment, the capacity of the quarry in Straževica near Batočina will increase to about 300 metric tons per hour - it is announced from company Metso.

The final products from quarry Straževica are belonged to categories from 0-4 to 32-63 mm.

Due to the fact that Metso devices have already been commissioned in the Teko Mining quarries, I can say that we are very satisfied with the equipment and support provided by Metso - said Uroš Veljić, general manager of Teko Mining.

Today, in our quarries, it's hard to work in three shifts, in order to get enough materials to satisfy the market needs. With new equipment, we will be able to produce the required quantities through work in just one shift. In addition to increasing production, we will also be able to reduce the quntity of waste that is generated and to produce aggregates with better quality - added Veljić.

The new Metso crushing and sieving plant in the Straževica quarry consists of a slope sieve of the Premier CVB202P (TM), a portable crusher NW 1213 (TM) and two portable plants types NW2060 (TW) for sieving. In addition, the equipment includes Barmac B6150SE crushers, dust removal devices, steel structures and conveyor belts.

According to the announcement, when it is talking about quarry Ćeramide, it is planned installation of two new CVB (TM) types for sieving systems.

The value of procurement, which company Metso has already included in the register of received orders in the last quarter of 2016, is EUR 2.4 million, it is added in the announcement.

Metso is a global industrial giant, operating in the mining, aggregate, recycling, oil, gas, pulp, paper and manufacturing industries, and it is listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange.
