Metso will supply anode casting shops to copper producers in Japan and China under deals said to be worth €13 million.
The Finnish manufacturer did not identify the buyers but said each would get its Outotec casting technology and engineering services.
“Today, most of the world’s copper anodes are produced with Metso’s proprietary anode casting technology,” the company’s senior smelting sales manager, Harri Talvensaari, said.
“We have delivered over 100 anode casting shops around the world, and our frontrunning technology is used globally by the leading copper producers.
“Our anode casting shops are compatible with different types of smelting technologies, enabling reliable operation and a consistent throughput.”
