Outotec has agreed with Southern Peru Copper Corporation (SPCC) for
the delivery of a copper solvent extraction and electrowinning plant
for SPCC's Tía María project in Arequipa region in Peru. The contract
value is USD 150 million (over EUR 90 million), out of which USD 90
million is already included in Outotec's 2008 second quarter order

proprietary equipment and services for the construction supervision
and commissioning.

SPCC's Tía María project includes the development of a new processing
unit for the Tía María and La Tapada deposits. When completed in
2010, Tía María is expected to produce 120,000 tons of copper
cathodes per year."This project is the largest solvent extraction and electrowinning
project in Outotec's history and it further strengthens our position
as a market leader in copper solvent extraction technologies," says
Tapani Järvinen, CEO of Outotec.
