Metso Outotec’s scope of delivery includes the supply of basic engineering and equipment for the copper electrowinning plant expansion.

Metso Outotec’s offering for copper electrowinning tankhouses comprises pre-engineered solutions, key equipment, and services to ensure superior process performance, increased safety, and minimized environmental impact.
