Metso Outotec’s scope of delivery consists of equipment for major modifications to the traveling grate, rotary kiln, and annular cooler, and it will increase the production line’s capacity to over six million tons of iron ore pellets per year. Metso Outotec and Ferrexpo have recently worked together to complete the engineering.

“Metso Outotec and Ferrexpo have developed a strong relationship and common respect for each other while planning improvements for Ferrexpo’s Poltava site.

Once the project is complete, Poltava will not only be able to substantially increase the plant production, but they will also realize considerable improvements in the plant’s fuel and power consumption as well as plant emissions,” says Chris Urban, VP, Heat Transfer Products at Metso Outotec.
