Metso Outotec wins yet another pelletizing plant order in China

Metso Outotec Corporation’s press release on May 12, 2021, at 09:00 a.m. EEST

Metso Outotec has signed a contract with Beijing Shougang International Engineering Technology Co, Ltd. (BSIET) on the delivery of environmentally sound pelletizing technology for Yunnan Yuxi Yukun Iron and Steel Group Co., Ltd. The iron ore pelletizing plant will be built in the Dahua industry park of Eshan, Yuxi, Yunnan, China. The order value is not disclosed. The contract has been booked into Metals’ Q2/2021 orders received.

Metso Outotec's scope of delivery covers the engineering and design of the indurating system, engineering of the process gas fan system, supply of proprietary equipment, instrumentation and control systems, as well as supervisory services and technical training. The Yukun plant targets annual production of 4 million tonnes of pellets. Production is expected to start in 2023.

“This is the third pellet plant order we’ve received within a short period of time from China. Today, China is the largest crude steel producer in the world, accounting for over half of the world’s production. Driven by rapid modernization of its economy, construction, infrastructure and manufacturing industries, China is continuously developing its production facilities and capabilities to meet the domestic and world demand, as well as the increasing sustainability requirements related to emissions control and carbon neutrality. Metso Outotec’s traveling grate technology used in the pelletizing plants ensures high performance and quality while decreasing energy consumption and emissions significantly,” says Attaul H. Ahmad, Vice President, Ferrous & Heat Transfer business line at Metso Outotec.
