OUTOTEC OYJ STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE, JULY 26, 2007 AT 0.30 PM

Outotec has agreed with Dubai Aluminium Company Limited of Dubai and
Mubadala Development Company PJSC of Abu Dhabi for the supply of a
new green anode plant and spent anode crushing facility for their
aluminum smelter located in Abu Dhabi. The contract value is
approximately EUR 100 million.

Outotec's scope of delivery covers the engineering, supply and
installation of a new green anode plant including two anode
production lines, a crushing plant for spent anodes and ancillary
facilities.

The new plant will use innovative Regenerative Thermal Oxidization
technology for efficient pitch fume treatment. The plant is designed
for the annual production of 500,000 tonnes of green anodes and the
commissioning of the first production line is scheduled for June
2009."Aluminum consumption is growing fast and our customers are expecting
it to double by 2020. Therefore, aluminum industry is continuously
investing in new capacity. The Middle East is attracting aluminum
producers because the region offers competitively priced energy for
the needs of highly energy-intensive aluminum production. Thanks to
our broad technology portfolio, the Middle East offers a lot of
possibilities for Outotec and we see many new aluminum and other
prospects in the area", says Tapani Järvinen, President and CEO of
Outotec.
