Construction on the first phase begins in July 2024, comprising assembly and testing facilities for track-mounted crushing plants as well as storage spaces. In later phases, the center will integrate a rock crusher manufacturing plant, research center, service workshop and office spaces. Lokomotion is expected to be fully completed by the mid-2030s.

Metso is emphasizing the project’s environmental-friendliness and sustainable development goals. The center has applied for a BREEAM “Very Good” sustainability certification and will adhere to the City of Tampere’s climate resilience and nature-based solution requirements.

– Tampere is an extremely significant location for Metso, and through our long Lokomo history, we are also an important part of the city’s industrial heritage. We are very pleased to be implementing the significant Lokomotion project, allowing our operations in the area to continue in a new state-of-the-art technology center and production facility. The project involves numerous partners and will have a major employment impact on the region, said Markku Simula, President of Metso’s Crushing business area.

The Lokomotion campus marks a major investment by Metso in sustainable crusher and screener manufacturing capabilities for the future.
