Outotec to deliver iron-ore pelletizing technology to India
Outotec Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.outotec.com) received an order from a customer in India for the design and delivery of an iron-ore pelletizing plant to be constructed in North-East India. The value of the order is approximately €70 million and it will be booked in Outotec's second quarter 2014 order intake.
Outotec's scope of delivery includes technology for a traveling-grate pelletizing plant, engineering, key process equipment as well as erection and commissioning services. Once operational the plant will produce annually 4-million metric tons of iron ore pellets to be used as raw material for steel production.
The new pellet plant will be built to one of the oldest mine sites in India. It will allow recycling of low value iron ore fines and slimes for conversion to value added products. Outotec has delivered nearly 70 pelletizing plants worldwide, and about two thirds of the global pellet production derives from Outotec traveling grate process.
