Outotec is a global leader in designing, developing and supplying tailored plants, processes and equipment for the minerals and metals processing industries. As part of the Outotec group, which employs 10,700 people in over 40 countries, Outotec is able to draw on unparalleled experience in metals production and processing and are global leaders with alumina calcining technology.
In Australian, as part of Alcan’s $2.4b AUD expansion of its Gove alumina refinery Outotec was contracted to provide detailed design and engineering of three calciners producing alumina with the capacity of 3500 tones per day (TPD). The ‘G3 project’, one of the largest investments ever undertaken in the Northern Territory, will increase the existing plants’ capacity from 2 to 3.8 million tonnes of alumina per annum, enabling Alcan to meet the ever increasing worldwide demand. Outotec has adopted Intergraph software as standard – almost all plant design projects are executed using Intergraph software worldwide.
