Metso Outotec says it has signed a landmark contract for the delivery of an iron ore beneficiation and travelling grate pelletising plant to Africa.
While the parties have agreed to not disclose the value of the contract, the scope of delivery includes the engineering and supply of key process equipment for the beneficiation and pelletising plant.
In addition, Metso Outotec will provide site supervision and commissioning services and deliver automation and training for the project, which the OEM conducted early engineering works for in 2020.
“This new greenfield plant is the first integrated beneficiation and pelletising plant we are delivering globally,” Jari Ålgars, President, Metals business area, said. “It will feature Metso Outotec’s sustainable proprietary technology, such as Low NOx burners to minimise emissions in the process, as well as state-of-the-art digital solutions, including our Optimus™ process optimiser and a green pellet-size control system.”
