Sustainability through Operations and Maintenance contract

High up in the Andes, some 150 km northeast of the Chilean capital, Santiago, lies one of the world’s most efficiently run copper mines, Minera Los Pelambres. Since 1999, the maintenance of the minerals processing plant has been outsourced to FLSmidth Minerals. Over the years a close relationship has developed between the mining company and the service provider based on a common understanding of sustainability and business performance.
