:: Outotec Receives Minerals Processing Technology Orders from Mexico


Outotec has been awarded minerals processing technology orders by Grupo Peņoles for four greenfield concentrators and one expansion in Mexico. The orders, worth over EUR 47 million, have been booked in Outotec's third quarter order intake.

Outotec's deliveries include altogether 148 Outotec TankCell® flotation cells, 9 Outotec® High Rate thickeners and automation packages, including Outotec PSI® particle size analyzers, Courier® 6i SL high performance XRF on-stream slurry analyzers and samplers for Rey de Plata copper and lead concentrator, San Julian Vetas zinc concentrator and Saucito Plant II silver and gold concentrator. In addition, Outotec will deliver 6 thickeners to the expansion of San Julian gold concentrator and provide installation and commissioning services and spare parts for each project for one year.

The latest technological innovations in flotation and thickening create conditions for optimal concentrator performance. Outotec's advanced on-line analyzers provide information, which enables significant benefits through real-time process control and optimization. Particle size monitoring and control improves the average grinding and flotation circuit throughput and availability while maintaining the target grind. Additionally, the grinding control improves downstream process performance, reducing reagent consumption and increasing metal recoveries. On-line elemental analyzers provide real-time assay information to plant operators and process control systems for optimizing flotation circuit recovery and concentrate quality. Reduced energy and water consumption realize sustainability targets.

The deliveries will take place in the second half of 2014.

"Industrias Peņoles and its subsidiary Fresnillo PLC are already widely utilizing Outotec's process technologies and equipment with proven performance. These investments will further improve the productivity and performance of their concentrator plants ensuring high yield and efficient operations far into the future", states Jari Rosendal, head of Outotec's businesses in the Americas.
