Serbian quarry operator invests in more Metso equipment

Metso crushing and screening equipment

Teko Mining order new crushing and screening plant worth £2.2 million from Finnish company 

TEKO Mining, one of the largest aggregate producers in Serbia, have selected Metso to provide crushing and screening equipment for two of their quarries in the country. The new mineral processing solutions will increase production capacity, reduce waste and improve end-product quality for the quarry operator. 

Teko Mining has four quarries almost fully equipped with Metso machines. With a total production capacity of around 3 million tonnes a year, these sites produce various aggregate materials for the development and construction of infrastructure in Serbia. 

The delivery of the new Metso crushing and screening equipment at Teko’s Straževica Quarry is expected to increase plant capacity to around 300 tonnes/h, with final products ranging from 0–4 to 32–73mm. 

They will include: a Premier CVB202P inclined screen; a NW1213 portable impact crusher; and two NW2060 screening plants. Metso will also supply a Barmac B6150SE vertical shaft impactor, dedusting equipment, steel structures and conveyors. Mineral processing operations at Teko’s Ceramide Quarry will be upgraded with two new Premier CVB screens. 

‘Teko has quarries where many Metso units are already in operation and we are highly satisfied with the equipment and aftersales support they have provided us,’ said Uros Veljic, general manager of Teko Mining. 

‘Today, our quarries operate in three shifts and we face challenges to produce enough material to meet demand. With the new plant, we will be able to produce the required volumes running in a single shift. In addition to the higher quarry outputs, we will be able to reduce waste and produce higher-quality aggregates.’
