Metso Outotec to deliver a large number of high-capacity slurry pumps for tailings treatment in Ukraine

Metso Outotec Corporation’s press release on October 4, 2021, at 09:00 a.m. EEST

Engineering Dobersek in Germany and Severniy Mining and Processing (SevGOK) in Ukraine have selected Metso Outotec’s mill discharge pumps for Severniy’s greenfield process waste thickening plant.

Metso Outotec’s reliable high-capacity pumps will be used to pump the iron ore concentrate plant`s waste sludge into the settling ponds from the thickeners. The 22 pumps to be delivered by Metso Outotec include ten large high-capacity MDM700 pumps. Together, the pumps are capable of handling a total volume of 117,500 m3 of waste sludge per hour.

“SevGOK’s complex is the second of its kind in Ukraine, and Engineering Dobersek in Germany has designed it. With this investment, SevGOK aims to decrease environmental impacts and costs by lowering energy consumption and water usage. They chose Metso Outotec pumps because of their reliability and efficiency, and the good support Metso Outotec has provided in their previous projects,” says Axel Stappen, Managing Director, Engineering Dobersek GmbH.

“We are delighted to have been selected to supply our MD series pumps to SevGOK’s project. To give an idea of the size of an MDM700 pump, it can weigh as much as 31 tons and be 2.8 meters in diameter, and have an impressive pumping volume of up to 9,650 m3/h. The MDM pumps operate in very demanding conditions, and we’ve designed them to operate reliably and to withstand exceptional wear,” says Michael Nienhaus, Head of Sales, Slurry Pumps, Germany, Metso Outotec.

Metso Outotec mill discharge pumps have been designed for mill circuit applications, such as SAG/ball mill discharge pumps and hydrocyclone feed. Special emphasis has been placed on components that have to withstand exceptional wear from coarse heavy solids and flow turbulence. The extensive range of Metso Outotec pumps covers flows of up to 12,000 m3/h, with the inlet sizes ranging from 250 mm to 800 mm with either a metal or rubber lining.
