Outotec Oyj: Outotec awarded a sulfuric acid plant contract from Boliden Harjavalta


Outotec awarded a sulfuric acid plant contract from Boliden Harjavalta

Outotec has agreed with the Sweden-based mining and smelting company Boliden
on the main design and delivery of proprietary equipment for a sulfuric acid
plant to be built in connection with the Harjavalta nickel and copper smelter
in Finland. The order has been booked in Outotec's 2016 first quarter order
intake, the value is not disclosed.

The Boliden Harjavalta plant is one of the largest nickel-copper smelters in
Europe. The new gas cleaning and sulfuric acid plant solutions designed by
Outotec will process off-gas from the smelters into high grade industrial
sulfuric acid. The plant will meet all of the current and planned European
environmental requirements through innovative gas cleaning, production of
sulfuric acid and highly efficient heat recovery system. In order to recover
as much energy as possible, the heat recovery system uses the surplus heat of
the SO2converter and turns it into high-pressure steam. The surplus heat from
the drying and absorption section of the acid plant is converted into hot
water and then supplied to the adjacent power plant for further use.

The first construction phase of the sulfuric acid plant is expected to be
operational in May-June 2018.

"We are extremely pleased that our long-term partner Boliden awarded us this
order. Outotec's advanced gas cleaning and sulfuric acid plant solution will
improve the environmental performance of the Harjavalta smelter and reduce
the need for external energy, which will shorten the payback time of the
investment," says Robin Lindahl, Head of Outotec's Metals, Energy&Water
business unit.
