Metso will supply a complete greenfield quarry plant to the Colas Group in France.

The large-scale delivery includes primary, secondary and tertiary stations with service maintenance contracts for inspection and extended guarantees.

The aggregate produced in the quarry is mainly destined for road construction. The value of the order will not be disclosed.

Metso's solution embraces the customer's high health and safety commitment with low environmental impact compared to less modern quarry plants, and the state-of-the-art crushing and screening system incorporates substantial savings in energy, production, transportation and maintenance costs with safe and environmentally friendly solutions.

“Tailored solutions for high-end output, reduced costs with energy-efficient machines and automated treatment are the major benefits we are delivering to our customer with this supply. Colas wanted not just a supplier, but a responsible partner for their investment. We've set an ambitious target and we're confident in achieving it,” says Philippe Portevin, sales director, France, Mining and Construction, Metso.

“It's been a long road but the spirit and close collaboration which has dominated this project from the outset supports our enthusiasm in concluding the contract today with Metso,”  says the Colas Centre Ouest management team on the day of signature.
