Metso Outotec says it has received orders for four anode casting shops from major copper producers in the USA, China and Africa that come with a total value of around €18 million ($19.2 million).
In each of the projects, Metso Outotec’s scope of delivery includes anode casting shops with engineering and state-of-the-art technology.
Harri Talvensaari, Senior Sales Manager, Smelting at Metso Outotec, said: “Today, most of the world’s copper anodes are produced with Metso Outotec’s proprietary anode casting technology. We have delivered over 100 anode casting shops around the world, and our frontrunning technology is used globally by the leading copper producers. Our anode casting shops are compatible with different types of smelting technologies, enabling reliable operation and consistent throughput.”
Metso Outotec’s fully electric anode casting shops feature a high level of automation, which ensures premium anode quality with excellent weight accuracy and a low reject rate combined with high capacity and availability, the company says. Metso Outotec also offers a variety of modular upgrades for existing installations, including equipment, automation, services and digital tools, like the on-line MouldSense™ system.
