:: Outotec to Supply a Complete Zinc Roasting Line for Votorantim Metais in Peru

Outotec has been awarded a contract to supply a new zinc roasting plant including gas cleaning and sulfuric acid plant on turnkey basis for Votorantim Metais to be built in Cajamarquilla, Peru. The contract value exceeds EUR 80 million.

Votorantim Metais, one of the world's largest zinc producers, is planning to expand its annual zinc production in Peru by 160,000 tonnes to a total of 320,000 tonnes.

Outotec's scope of supply covers the roasting, gas cleaning and acid plant technologies, engineering, civil works, all process equipment, construction, supervision services as well as commissioning of the plant. The delivery time is two years.

"This new zinc plant contract demonstrates our long relationship with Votorantim Metais. In 1977 we built the first zinc roaster in Cajamarquilla and it is still working at increased capacity", says Tapani Järvinen, CEO of Outotec, and adds: "In this second delivery we have a larger scope and are designing the whole roaster train, which brings additional benefits for the customer, such as improved energy recovery as well as reduced dust and sulfur dioxide gas emissions, which enhance the environmental conditions of the plant."
