:: Ausmelt Signs its Ninth Chinese Contract
Ausmelt Ltd has signed a major new contract with a leading Chinese metals producer to provide Ausmelt TSL Technology for a new copper smelter to be built in the People's Republic of China.
The client company has requested confidentiality until its Board of Directors has approved a suitable starting date for the project.
Work on the new project is expected to begin towards the end of the March quarter. When completed, the project will be the ninth Ausmelt Technology smelter operating in China.
Ausmelt Managing Director, Mr Paul Abbott, said today: “The growing Chinese metals market and China’s requirement for environmentally sustainable smelting technology are creating new business opportunities for Ausmelt technologies.
“The company is currently working on six Chinese smelting projects and Ausmelt technology is becoming the technology of choice for many Chinese metals producers."
Mr Abbott said Ausmelt’s top submerged lance smelting technology had now been adopted in China to produce copper, nickel, lead and tin.
