:: Technip to Provide Dorr Oliver FluoSolids® Roasting System for KGHM in Poland


Technip was awarded a contract by KGHM to provide engineering and procurement services for a 480 metric ton per day Dorr Oliver FluoSolids® roaster system for the Glogow I Copper Smelter Optimization Project in Glogow, Poland.

Based on Technip’s proprietary technology, this system will include the roaster, dry concentrate feeder and calcine cooler. These components will remove organic carbon and sulfide sulfur from copper concentrate. This will reduce smelter emissions and improve copper production at the site. The system also includes in-bed steam coils for cogeneration of electricity.

In addition to proprietary technology and equipment, Technip will provide erection supervision, commissioning, startup and training assistance to KGHM.

Technip’s operating center in Claremont, California, USA, will execute the project, which is scheduled for completion in 2017.

Stan Knez, President, Technip Stone & Webster Process Technology, commented: "Technip’s extensive experience in roasting technology along with our proven ability to meet a demanding schedule makes us uniquely qualified for this important project."

With more than 70 years of experience with the Dorr-Oliver FluoSolids® technology, Technip is a leading provider of fluidized bed equipment and systems for metallurgical roasting, calcining and drying, waste combustion and other diverse applications. The technology has been part of Technip’s portfolio since 2000. Other recent installations include the Koniambo Nickel in New Caledonia and Vale’s Copper Cliff smelter in Ontario, Canada.
