The C200 was installed in Pyhäsalmi in 2001
At the turn of the millennium, a whole new underground line for processing and lifting ore was built in Pyhäsalmi. In July 2001, Finland’s first Nordberg® C series C200™, was installed as the primary crusher in the ore processing line. The C200 is Metso’s largest jaw crusher in its size class.
Thanks to the bolted frame structure of the C Series jaw crushers, it was possible to transport the jaw crusher to the installation site on a trailer truck in challenging conditions through a low, narrow tunnel more than 11 kilometers long. The C200 was installed and commissioned in its final location underground. It took approximately six weeks to get the crusher installed and ready, including the electrical wiring and lubrication units.
