:: Outotec to Deliver Thickening Technology to Toromocho Project in Peru

Outotec has been awarded a contract by Minera Chinalco Perú for the supply of a thickening technology for Toromocho's greenfield copper project in Peru. The contract value is approximately EUR 11 million.

Outotec's scope includes design, fabrication and delivery of four Outotec® Paste Thickeners, each 43 meters of diameter. The thickeners feature Outotec Vane Feedwell(TM) technology and concentric shear thinning systems. The technology package also includes six concentrate thickeners of various diameters and spare parts for start-up and commissioning. The deliveries will take place by the end of 2010.

Toromocho has significant mineral reserves. Minera Chinalco's new mine will have an estimated annual capacity of 250,000 tonnes of copper concentrate with molybdenum and silver by-products.

"This contract is a great example of Outotec's ability to deliver paste thickeners and shear thinning devices, combined with Outotec's vast expertise in modular structures. This will meet the demanding restrictions in transportation dimensions and will reduce the installation time to the minimum in challenging conditions of the Peruvian Andes," Brandt Henriksson, Global Thickeners Technology Manager of Outotec, says.
