Outotec has signed a contract with OCP Group for the delivery of a sulfuric acid plant for fertilizer production in Morocco.
The approximately €80 million order has been booked into Outotec's 1Q19 order intake.
Outotec's delivery includes the engineering, procurement and construction of the plant, which is based on Outotec's sulfur burning system. The new acid plant will incorporate advanced proprietary technologies such as HEROS heat recovery system as well as a converter, absorption towers and an acid distribution system that are made of the Edmeston SX stainless steel alloy.
The acid plant will be built in connection with OCP’s existing chemical complexes and support in OCP's fertilizer production from phosphate rock from their mining processes as a raw material.
"Outotec's sulfuric acid technology has proven to be one of the leading technologies for decades. We are honoured that OCP has selected our design for their new plant. With our leading technologies providing benefits such as safety, high reliability and enhanced heat recovery we are happy to help OCP reach their sustainability targets," said Kalle Härkki, head of Outotec's Metals, Energy & Water business.
