Outotec to modernize Pasar copper smelter in the Philippines
Outotec Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.outotec.com) has been awarded a contract by Philippine Associated Smelting and Refining Co. (Pasar) for the modernization of Pasar's copper smelter in the Philippines. The contract value exceeds €12 million and it has been booked in Outotec's third quarter order intake.
Pasar's copper smelter is based on Outotec Flash Smelting technology. The original Outotec Flash Smelting license dates all the way back to 1977. Over the years Pasar has regularly upgraded the smelter together with Outotec.
Outotec's scope of modernization work this time includes equipment deliveries such as modern proprietary concentrate-feeding system and burner, process advisor, furnace cooling system and anode casting shop including the supervision services.
