Calcining contract worth 30m euros signed with Russian firm

A leading engineering company has sealed a contract to build a calcining system for a customer in Russia.

The order worth £27.3m (30m euros) has been booked in Metso’s first quarter of orders received. Commissioning of the system is expected to take place in three year’s time.

The system, which consists of two calcining lines with a total capacity of 420, 000 tons annually, has been designed to remove moisture and volatile substances and improve the product’s physical and chemical features.

Both lines feature a rotary kiln, an afterburner and a rotary cooler. Automation, control and additional systems are also included in the delivery.

Metso, with its headquarters in Helsinki, is the world’s leading supplier of this type of calcining systems and it has designed and supplied more than 50 plants. This represents about 70 percent of the total capacity in the world.
