Metso Outotec has opened a new pump assembly plant in Lima, Peru. With this strategic investment, Metso Outotec is responding to the increasing market demand for large pumps used in mining applications in South America, and at the same time reducing delivery times to its customers in the region. Once fully operational, the plant will be able to deliver standard Metso Outotec pumps with competitive lead times to regional customers.
“Pumps are critical parts in the mining process and used in various applications, from grinding to tailings. The new state-of-the-art assembly plant in Peru is specifically customized for the production of large Planet Positive MD Series pumps, which are typically used in demanding grinding circuit applications,” says Freddy Carrion, Pump Operations Manager at the new plant.
