Outotec to deliver sintering technology for JSW Steel in India
Outotec has signed a contract on the delivery of sintering technology for JSW Steel Limited's (JSW) new iron ore sinter plant to be built in Toranagallu. The contract includes technology fee and the supply of proprietary equipment.
The new plant is expected to produce annually around 2.3 million tonnes of iron sinter which will be used as feed for blast furnaces in steel production. Outotec's delivery is a part of JSW's expansion to take its annual sinter capacity to 10 million tonnes. The commissioning for the plant is scheduled for 2011.
"This is already JSW's fourth sinter plant designed with Outotec's technology in the past five years. The previous plant delivered by Outotec and commissioned this year will be India's largest sinter plant. Outotec has designed eleven sinter plants in India since 2003 confirming the company's position as the leading supplier of agglomeration technology in the iron and steel industry", says Pertti Korhonen, CEO of Outotec.
