Outotec Oyj: Outotec to deliver modular solvent extraction technology to South America


Outotec to deliver modular solvent extraction technology to South America

Outotec has won an order for the delivery of modular solvent extraction
technology and services to a brownfield copper production plant in South
America. This approximately EUR 30 million order has been booked in Outotec's
2015 first quarter order intake.

The customer is making changes to their heap leaching operation to enhance the
copper recovery from secondary sulfide minerals. These changes in the
leaching phase require an upgrade in the downstream solvent extraction plant
washing capacity. Outotec's solution comprises the breakthrough VSF®X Modular
Solvent Extraction technology, including technology license, engineering,
proprietary and auxiliary equipment and advisory services for installation,
commissioning and start-up. Deliveries from Outotec will take place in 2015.

"This order demonstrates how Outotec's revolutionary modular plant concept
provides added value in projects", says Robin Lindahl, head of Metals,
Energy&Water business area at Outotec. "Modular technology enables quick
delivery and installation, safe operation as well as high performance and
availability even during maintenance, all backed up by performance
guarantees. With our solution the customer can reach the targeted production
in the planned fast schedule, safely and with minimal construction work at
the site. The technology fulfills the strictest environmental and safety
standards, minimizes the energy consumption and reduces the overall project

Outotec has developed the highly acclaimed VSF®X Modular Solvent Extraction
technology in the last few years and launched the technology at the end of
2013. There is an increasing demand for this concept in various solvent
extraction applications, both in brownfield optimization projects and
greenfield plants.
