Metso’s diesel-powered/electrical Lokotrack® double-stage plant ensures that different types of crushed rock are produced effectively and economically. As a bonus, the new Lokotrack® ST4.10™ screen operates carbon neutrally, using electricity produced by the tertiary crusher.
“Last year, we crushed more than 600,000 tons, of which some 250,000 tons were processed into different types of concrete gravel. The majority of the concrete gravel is delivered to five companies operating in the concrete industry in the Päijät-Häme region,” says Jari Pärhä, who is in charge of the crushing operations and production at Pärhä Oy.
“When such volumes are being produced by a single crushing plant, the machinery needs to be reliable. Metso is known as a dependable Finnish company that also provides well-functioning maintenance services.”
“Metso developed a Lokotrack for our needs”
The family-owned company, established by Tuomo Pärhä in 1980, shifted from forestry to the gravel business at the beginning of the 2000s. Currently, the company specializes in crushing and transportation services. Since the beginning of this year the company has three partners: Petri Pärhä is Managing Director, Jari is in charge of the crushing operations, and Tommi is taking care of the transportation arrangements.
