:: Outokumpu Technology Nominated as Contractor for a Large Sinter Plant in Brazil

Companhia Siderśrgica do Atlāntico (CSA) and Outokumpu Technology have entered into a Letter of Understanding appointing Outokumpu Technology as the Nominated Contractor for the design and supply of a turnkey iron ore sinter plant CSA plans to build in connection with its greenfield steel plant in Sepetiba, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

CSA is a joint venture of ThyssenKrupp Steel as major share holder and Companhia Vale do Rio Doce (CVRD). CSA's new steel plant is scheduled to start operation in 2009 and produce five million tons of steel products, mainly for the export to Europe and the NAFTA region.
