Massive motors installed in Panamanian mine



Marthinusen & Coutts, a division of ACTOM, recently executed the sub-assembly of six gearless mill drives for Minera Panamá’s remotely situated Cobre Panamá project in record time, and as a result was able to hand the machine over to the mechanical teams for professional assembly well ahead of schedule. Minera Panamá, the Panamanian subsidiary of First Quantum Minerals, is currently developing the Cobre Panamá project, located in Colón province. The mine life has been estimated at more than 30 years and will produce around 300,000 t/y copper, 100,000 oz/y gold and 2500 t/y molybdenum. Marthinusen & Coutts has a proven track record partnering with customers on similar complex projects, while still being able to offer a cost competitive solution. Significantly, the company has an established reputation as an expert in gearless mill drive refurbishment, winding termination and testing of motor segments. Projects previously successfully completed by the division include the installation of six Siemens gearless mill drives at various mines in north west Zambia.
