Insee Aggregates has selected Metso to supply a full-scope, state-of-the-art quarry processing plant for the Suphanburi Quarry in Thailand. The delivery covers all the advanced crushing and screening equipment, full electrical plant design, automation software and hardware, as well as related services and sustainable optimisation.
After its completion, the plant will be the most modern processing plant in Thailand for the production of high-quality aggregates, with an estimated production capacity of 2 million tons per year. The in-the-pit mining and crushing and screening plant will be located northwest of Bangkok. The new plant is expected to start production in 2018.
Says Craig Bickley, CEO Siam City Concrete (SCCO), “Metso’s approach to this design and construct project was to invest considerable time, effort and resources to ensure they had fully understood and captured our requirements and needs, and then to advance our thinking in new and innovative ways.
“Achieving our ambitious vision was only going to be possible with the participation of an advanced, reliable and proven international partner. This, combined with a strong local presence and knowledge, was the compelling reason we selected Metso,” he concludes.
Metso’s delivery covers the crushing and screening plant, including five crushers, five vibrating screens, plant and overland conveyors, steel structures and chuteworks, ancillary equipment, electrical and automation, as well as related services, such as installation, start-up, commissioning and technical direction.
