Outotec has been awarded a contract by Shandong Province Metallurgical Engineering Co., Ltd. (SDM) for the delivery of process equipment to the Iron Concentrate Project Sangan in North-Eastern Iran. The Iranian Mines and Mining Industries Development & Renovation Organization (IMIDRO) owns the Sangan mines and SDM is their engineering partner. The contract value is approximately EUR 10 million and the order has been booked in Outotec's 2016 second quarter order intake.

Outotec's scope of work includes the design and delivery of thickeners and filter presses as well as related installation supervision and commissioning services including spare parts. The new iron processing plant will process annually 5 million tonnes of ore. The equipment will be delivered mostly during the second quarter of 2017.

"We are pleased to have been given the opportunity to deliver the main dewatering process equipment to the second phase of the Sangan Iron project. Our comprehensive portfolio of dewatering equipment enables us to tailor efficient and environmentally sound solutions and services for iron ore processing", says Kalle Härkki, head of Outotec's Minerals Processing business unit.

Sangan region, dubbed “Iran’s Mineral Heaven”, is located in Khaf County of Khorasan Razavi Province about 300 kilometers southeast of Mashhad. It is home to a large number of mining projects. Gold, copper, lead, zinc and rare earths are among minerals discovered in the 12,000-square-kilometer zone so far, apart from iron ore.
