By Gerald Ondrey |

Outotec Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.outotec.com) will supply flotation technology for a major copper producer in South America to their concentrator expansion. The site is one of the largest copper producing sites in the world. The contract value is over €30 million. Outotec’s delivery includes copper rougher and scavenger flotation technology with 70 pieces of proprietary TankCell e300 flotation cells, which currently is the world’s largest flotation cell volume in operation. TankCell e300 flotation cells are equipped with Outotec’s patented FloatForce energy saving flotation mechanism, which reduces operating costs and environmental impact of the operations. Start-up of the new flotation cells is scheduled for 2015.
