Outotec to modernize Pasar copper smelter in the Philippines

Outotec has been awarded a contract by Philippine Associated Smelting and Refining Company (PASAR) for the modernization of PASAR's copper smelter in the Philippines. The contract value exceeds EUR 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. 

"PASAR and Outotec long-term relationship is a good example how the smelting technology can evolve by working together. By renovating and upgrading the older generation smelting plants with latest technology developments and our rebuild services, our customers can meet the increasing efficiency and environmental requirements and ensure their competitiveness far in the future", notes Robin Lindahl, head of Outotec's Metals, Energy & Water businesses.
