Outotec to deliver copper plant for Codelco in Chile

By Gerald Ondrey |

Outotec Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.outotec.com) has signed a contract with Codelco for the design and delivery of a copper-concentrate-roasting plant, gas-cleaning system and sulfuric-acid plant for Codelco’s new Mina Ministro Hales mine near Calama, Northern Chile. The contract price is approximately €116 million. Outotec’s turn-key plant delivery includes basic and detail engineering, proprietary and process equipment, installation and start up services. Outotec and Codelco also signed a Memorandum of Understanding for two years’ operation and maintenance of the new plant.   The new plant will treat annually up to 550,000 metric tons (m.t.) tonnes of copper concentrate and it will produce approximately 250,000 m.t./yr of sulfuric acid. The plant is scheduled to be commissioned in early 2012. “Codelco, the world’s largest copper producer, has been our business partner for decades. The company has high standards for operational safety and environmental requirements. This significant order demonstrates their confidence in the sustainability of our technologies and project execution competence,” says Pertti Korhonen, president and CEO of Outotec.
