Outotec to design and deliver concentrator to Russian Copper's Tominsky project
Outotec Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.outotec.com) has agreed with Russian Copper Co. on the design and delivery of a new copper concentrator for the first stage of the Tominsky project in the Chelyabinsk region in Russia. The total value of the contracts exceed €50 million, which will be booked in Outotec's Q2 2013 order intake.
Russian Copper Co. is developing a large porphyry-copper deposit in Tominsky to produce concentrate at site by autumn 2015. Outotec's delivery for the project includes basic and detail engineering of the concentrating process, proprietary and key equipment, such as TankCell 300 flotation cells, thickeners, analyzers and automation, as well as installation and commissioning supervision services.
The deliveries are scheduled for 2014. Once operational, at the first stage the concentrator will treat 17-million metric tons (m.t.) of ore per year and produce 63,000 m.t./yr copper in concentrate to be further processed in Russian Copper Co.'s smelters.
