Under the €30m contract, the company will also deliver operating licences for both Outotec Flash Smelting and Kennecott-Outotec Flash Converting technologies, basic engineering and supply proprietary equipment for smelting and converting.

The smelter will have an annual capacity of 400,000t of cathode copper under the first phase, which is expected to start in early 2013.

Outotec will combine its Flash Smelting with Kennecott-Outotec Flash Converting to provide a clean copper smelting method.
