Outotec to supply sinter plant to South Africa

By Gerald Ondrey |

Outotec Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.outotec.com) has agreed with South African Kalagadi Manganese Pty. Ltd. on the design and delivery of a new manganese sinter plant to be built in Hotazel in the country’s Northern Cape Province. The contract value is approximately €119 million. Outotec is responsible for the delivery of the sinter plant on a turnkey basis including engineering, project management, supply of all equipment and structural steel, construction, commissioning as well as advisory services for civil works. The new plant will ultimately produce 2.4-million metric tons of sinter annually. Manganese ore sinter is used as raw material for the production of high carbon ferromanganese. The plant commissioning is scheduled for March 2012. Kalagadi Manganese is 50% owned by the world’s largest steel producer, ArcelorMittal, whereas Kalagadi Resources owns 40% and IDC 10% of the company.
