:: Outotec to Deliver Chromite Pelletising and Sinter Plant for Samancor Chrome in South Africa

Outotec has been awarded the third pelletising and sinter plant order from Samancor Chrome of South Africa. The new plant will produce 600,000 tonnes of sintered pellets annually from chromite ore and it will be built in Middelburg. In 1998, Outotec delivered a similar plant to Samancor Chrome's Ferrometals operations in Witbank and in 2002, to Tubatse in Steelpoort.

The delivery includes Outotec's SBSTM Steel Belt Sinter technology, license, basic engineering, supply of key equipment as well as installation supervision and commissioning services. A local contractor will provide process equipment outside Outotec's scope, installation and construction. Outotec's share of the project is approximately EUR 15 million.

The plant is expected to be commissioned towards the end of 2008.
