Outotec Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.outotec.com) has been awarded a contract by BCL Ltd. for modernizing the nickel flash smelting furnace in Selebi Phikwe, Botswana.

The total value of contracts exceeds €17 million and the order has been booked in Outotec’s fourth quarter 2014 order intake.

The scope of Outotec’s modernization work includes the redesign of the flash smelting furnace, delivery of new advanced cooling elements and integrating them into the furnace. The service level agreement includes installation and commissioning supervision services, preventive maintenance planning, equipment maintenance and spare parts.
