Outotec is to deliver the world’s largest iron ore pelletizing plant in Brazil.
Outotec has agreed with Samarco Mineração on a turnkey delivery of the world’s largest iron ore pelletizing plant in Brazil.
The €200M contract will be booked in Outotec’s Q2 order intake. In addition, the contract includes local €100M purchases performed on behalf of the customer. Some 90% of the services and supplies for the project will be delivered from Brazil.
