Outotec's delivery includes process engineering and proprietary process equipment as well as services for the commissioning and operational support for a new anode rodding shop, which is part of the new aluminium smelter. The new smelter is expected to produce annually one million tonnes aluminium. The deliveries will take place in 2016 and include both local and offshore equipment supply.
"This is our third aluminium technology order from China Xinfa Group and it reaffirms Outotec's technological leadership and competitiveness in China in the primary aluminium industry. We have a strong reputation as a provider of high capacity rodding shops for the needs of increasingly large aluminium smelters", says Stuart Sneyd, head of Outotec's APAC region.
