Metso to provide crushing and screening plant and Life Cycle Services to
increase capacity and reduce operating costs at Tata Steel's Sedibeng Iron
Ore mine in South Africa

Metso Corporation's press release on May 4, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. EET

Metso will deliver to Sedibeng Iron Ore (Pty) Ltd, a subsidiary of Tata Steel
Ltd, a stationary crushing and screening solution to its Sedibeng Iron Ore
mine in the Northern Cape, South Africa. The delivery includes a five-year
Life Cycle Services contract, which will bring Sedibeng increased production
capacity and reliability while reducing production costs.

Metso and Sedibeng Iron Ore (Pty) Ltd, a subsidiary of Tata Steel Ltd, a
renowned global steel company, have agreed on a combined order consisting of
a stationary crushing and screening plant, including primary and secondary
crushers, as well as a five-year Life Cycle Services contract. The cold
commissioning is scheduled for late 2016, and the plant should be operating
at the beginning of 2017.

"This complete solution covers services and equipment and thus ensures planned
maintenance and better production reliability for the customer. For Metso,
the order represents a new way of operating in southern Africa. It increases
our installed base in the area and will surely open up new opportunities in
the growing market," saysCharles Ntsele
, Metso's General Manager for Mining Sales in Southern Africa.

The order was booked in the first quarter of 2016 Metso's orders received. The
value of the order is not disclosed.

Tailored solution brings concrete business benefits

Sedibeng Iron Ore mine has previously been using a Metso mobile
crushing&screening solution operated by a subcontractor. Due to a planned
increase in capacity, Tata Steel, the principal shareholder, wanted to
investigate the possibility for a stationary plant.

"The key target for Sedibeng was to both guarantee plant availability and
lower their production costs. We worked with the customer in analyzing their
needs, such as operating costs and plant availability. For example, the
design of the plant was carefully considered and the process design criteria
reviewed. Based on the analysis, we came up with a high-end technical
solution, which will increase plant availability from 65-70% to 90% and
increase plant capacity to 600 ton per hour. Partnering up with the end user
allows Metso to build on our understanding of our customers' business drivers
and offer tailored solutions," Ntsele explains.

The complete solution consists of a Vibrating Feeder 561 - 2V, a C130 Jaw, a
CVB 603 Screen, an HP 500 Cone Crusher, Conveyors, electrics and automation
together with the other auxiliary equipment required for a crushing and
screening plant. The Life Cycle Services contract covers the supervision of
the plant maintenance including maintenance planning, training customer
personnel as well as spares and wears management.
