:: Outokumpu's Technology for the Gol-E-Gohar Pelletizing Plant in Iran

Outokumpu Technology has been awarded a contract by Gol-E-Gohar Iron Ore Company for a new pelletizing plant to be built in Gol-E-Gohar in the province of Kerman, the Islamic Republic of Iran. The total value of the project is about EUR 140 million, of which Outokumpu's scope of technology supply is about EUR 50 million.

The new plant will be built in collaboration with Concrete Industries & Copper Investment Consortium (CIC), one of the leading Iranian construction companies, ABB Switzerland and TAIM, Spain.

Gol-E-Gohar Iron Ore Company operates the biggest iron ore mine in Iran. The new pelletizing plant, once operational, will produce 4 000 000 tonnes of direct reduction quality iron pellets per year. Besides the two plants in Ahwaz and the plant in Mobarakeh near Esfahan, it will be the fourth Iranian pelletizing plant featuring a Lurgi traveling grate system. Outokumpu Technology with the acquisition of former Lurgi Metallurgie GmbH is the market leader for pelletizing technologies for the ferrous and ferroalloys industries.

Outokumpu's pelletizing technology was selected due to its capability to process a wide range of iron ores, including the magnetites of the Gol-E-Gohar deposit, which are specifically rich in sulphur.
