The mining group Anglo American relies on a ship loading system of FAM, a member of the BEUMER Group, for the loading of mined copper ore from the Peruvian plant Quellaveco. Thanks to the system’s special construction, no material can enter the environment. Anglo American benefits from a high loading capacity and a partner who supplies everything from a single source.
Demand for lithium-ion batteries continues to grow in the electromobility sector. This increases the demand for raw materials, such as copper. One of the world’s largest and best-known deposits with estimated reserves of 1.1 billion metric tons of copper ore is located near the port city of Ilo – just under 37 kilometers northeast of Moquegua in southern Peru. Anglo American, one of the world’s largest mining companies, operates the Quellaveco copper mine there.
Anglo American is headquartered in London. Through subsidiaries and shareholdings, the Group mines platinum, diamonds, copper, nickel, iron ore and coal. It also operates plants for the extraction of manganese and niobium as well as steel mills.
