Outotec to deliver sulfuric acid plant for Noracid in Chile

Outotec has agreed with Noracid S.A. on the delivery of a new
sulfuric acid plant to be built in Mejillones, Chile. The contract
value is approximately EUR 51 million.

Outotec's scope of delivery covers engineering, process equipment and
supervisory services for a plant designed to produce annually over
600,000 tonnes of sulfuric acid and approximately 24 MW of electric
energy. The sulfuric acid will be used by the local metallurgical
industry.

The plant is expected to be commissioned in the first quarter of
2011."Outotec has delivered sulfuric acid technology for a number of
plants in Chile, for example for Codelco's divisions and for
Xstrata's Altonorte operations. This new plant based in Mejillones
will further strengthen our market position as a leader in sulfuric
acid plant technologies in Chile," comments Outotec's CEO Tapani
Järvinen.
