Finnish minerals and metals processing technology company Outotec is to deliver two sulfuric acid plants for the Sarcheshmeh and Khatoon Abad copper smelters in the Iranian province of Kerman.

The agreement was made with National Iranian Copper Industries Company (NICICO).

“We are pleased to complement our earlier deliveries of Flash Smelting technology for NICICO’s two copper smelters with modern Outotec off-gas cleaning systems and sulfuric acid plants,” says Kalle Härkki, head of Outotec’s Metals, Energy & Water business unit. “With these investments, the smelters will have full compliance with the latest environmental standards.”

The deal encompasses engineering, main process equipment and instrumentation for the acid plants, along with spare parts and supervisory services for installation and commissioning.

Outotec’s deliveries will take place in mid-2018.
