Outotec has been awarded a contract by Hellas Gold for the supply of a large technology package for Hellas Gold’s copper-gold concentrator plant in Skouries in Northern Greece. The total contract value exceeds €30 million.

Hellas Gold owns three major gold and base metal deposits in Northern Greece which are the polymetallic deposit at Stratoni, the Olympias deposit containing gold, zinc, lead and silver, and the Skouries copper-gold-porphyry deposit.

Outotec’s delivery for the Skouries project covers proprietary technologies for grinding, flotation, thickening and automation including engineering and commissioning services. Most of the deliveries will be completed during 2009.

“This is a significant order for our Minerals Processing division. The project demonstrates our capabilities to integrate different process sections and technologies as well as to engineer and deliver large technology packages for concentrators and thus ensure the best recoveries from each raw material,” says Tapani Jãrvinen, President and CEO of Outotec.
