Outotec to deliver alumina calcination plant to CBA, Brazil


Outotec has been awarded a contract by Companhia Brasileira de
Alumínio S.A. (CBA) for the supply of an alumina calcination plant in
Alumínio (SP), Brazil. The contract value exceeds EUR 40 million.

Outotec's scope of delivery covers the engineering, supply and
construction of a circulating fluid bed calcination plant with a
capacity of 1,600 tons alumina per day. The start-up of the new plant
is scheduled for June 2009.

CBA belongs to Votorantim Group and is the biggest integrated
aluminum manufacturer in the world, with a total annual production of
470,000 tons of primary aluminum. The new unit will complement the
two existing calcination plants, which Outotec delivered in 1984 and
1990, and it will guarantee sufficient supply of alumina also for
CBA's further expansion planned for a production of 570,000 tons
aluminum per year by 2010.

Outotec's President and CEO Tapani Järvinen said: "This is our third
alumina calciner delivery to the same customer. Our experience and
reputation of offering first class alumina technology, combined with
reliable project execution, helped to secure this contract and firmly
establish Outotec's position as one of the leading technology
providers for the aluminum industry. In June we announced the
delivery of two alumina calciners to Russia and several technology
deliveries to China."
