Outotec wins EUR 80 million contract in UAE
Finnish minerals and metals processing technology company Outotec has signed an agreement with Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) for two alumina calciners.
The contract is valued at over 80 million euros and involves the design and delivery of the calciners to the alumina refinery that EGA is planning to construct in Al Taweelah, Abu Dhabi.
The order is the second for the Finnish company in Al Taweelah in recent months, following a contract signed with Emirates Aluminium Company Limited PJSC (EMAL) in April. The 10 million-euro agreement with EMAL involved the delivery of anode carbon plant technology for an expansion at its aluminium smelter complex.
EGA has also been in the news recently, becoming the Middle East’s first manufacturer to receive ISO certification earlier this month.
