Outotec has received two contracts worth €100m from Emirates Aluminium (EMAL) to expand an aluminium smelter in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Under the contract, Outotec will deliver aluminium smelter technology to the second phase of EMAL’s smelter expansion project located at Al-Taweelah.

The scope of work will include providing technology, engineering, supply and installation of a green anode plant with one anode production line, along with a crushing plant for recycled carbon materials.

The work will also involve the expansion of a liquid pitch storage system and the plant operation centre.

The smelter facility is scheduled to be operational by early 2014.
