Metso Outotec has signed an agreement with Kyzyl Aray Copper, a subsidiary of Caravan Resources, for the supply of copper solvent extraction and electrowinning technology for a plant to be built in the Karagandy region of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The order of approximately EUR 35 million has been booked in the Minerals segment’s fourth-quarter order intake.
The Metso Outotec technology package delivery includes the modular VSF®X solvent extraction plant and the main process equipment for the electrowinning plant.
“We are looking forward to working with Kyzyl Aray Copper on this project. The energy-efficient VSF®X solvent extraction plant, which is part of our Planet Positive product range, reduces emissions and is safe to operate. The Kyzyl Aray Copper project will become an important new reference for Metso Outotec in the growing Kazakhstan copper market as a supplier of a complete production plant that uses solvent extraction and electrowinning technology for copper recovery,” says Mikko Rantaharju, Vice President, Hydrometallurgy, at Metso Outotec.
