Outotec: Aluminum project in Saudi Arabia

By Gerald Ondrey |

Outotec Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.outotech.com) and Hatch Ltd. (Mississauga, Ont., Canada; www.hatch.ca), an unincorporated joint venture (JV), have been awarded a contract by the Ma’aden and Alcoa JV to provide an Integrated Digestion and Evaporation Facility to what will be the lowest cost aluminium complex in the world — the Ma’aden Aluminium Project in Ras Az Zawr, Saudi Arabia. The Outotec-Hatch overall contract value is approximately €50 million, with roughly equal share of the work between Outotec and Hatch. The delivery of the Integrated Digestion and Evaporation Facility includes a technology license, detailed engineering, procurement support and construction support services. Outotec and Hatch have jointly developed and own the tube digestion and integrated evaporation technologies to be installed at the Ras Az Zawr alumina refinery. This refinery will have an initial annual capacity of 1,800,000 metric tons alumina, with first production expected in 2014. The Ma’aden Aluminium Project comprises a fully integrated greenfield complex with bauxite mine, alumina refinery, aluminum smelter and can sheet rolling mill. It will contribute to the development of a world-class aluminum industry…
