Outotec Books Orders for 2 Solvent Extraction Systems
Outotec will deliver detailed engineering and a complete technology package for a modular copper solvent extraction and electrowinning plant for Sardich MC in Kazandol, Macedonia. Production is expected to begin in mid-2017.
Another contract, this one with the Italian engineering company Desmet Ballestra S.p.A Milano, calls for design and delivery of a solvent extraction plant to purify fertilizer phosphoric acid before evaporation. The plant will be built in connection with the El Nasr Co. for the Intermediate Chemicals (NCIC) fertilizer plant in Egypt. Outotecís supply includes VSFX technology, licensing, equipment for crud treatment and a cooling tower. Outotecís deliveries will take place in the end of 2017, and the entire plant is expected to be operational a year later. In June, Outotec contracted for delivery of two sulphuric acid plants for the same project.
