Metso Outotec’s scope of delivery includes the engineering and design of the indurating and process gas fan systems, supply of proprietary equipment, instrumentation, control systems, as well as supervisory services and technical training. Both plants feature Metso Outotec’s traveling grate pellet indurating furnace with a grate area of 342 m². The three-meter-wide plants each have a capacity of 2.6 MTPA. Pellet production at the Zhaofeng plant is estimated to start around the third quarter of 2024.

“The new plants incorporate state-of-the-art environmentally sound technology. We thank BSIET and our customers in China for their trust in Metso Outotec’s technology,” says Attaul Ahmad, Vice President, Ferrous & Heat Transfer business line at Metso Outotec.

“These plants will be a good reference for additional compact-sized pellet plants for this market segment in China. We have been successfully working with Metso Outotec for many years now and will further continue our cooperation,” says Mr. Hou, General Manager of BSIET.

Metso Outotec’s iron ore pelletizing process produces uniform pellets and ensures high performance and quality with low investment and operating costs as well as decreased energy consumption and emissions.
