Metso to rebuild Flash Smelting Furnace in Bulgaria

The value of the contract exceeds €10 million, and it is booked in the Minerals segment’s 1Q24 order intake.

The Outotec® Flash Smelting Furnace and related technologies were implemented at the Bulgarian primary copper smelter already in 1987; since then, various upgrades and improvements have been done at regular intervals in close cooperation between the two companies. The previous Flash Smelting Furnace rebuild was executed in 2016. The scope of this new order includes the delivery of new, advanced Outotec® Cooling Elements and the related advisory services to support the rebuild project.

“Metso’s long and close partnership with Aurubis Bulgaria AD provides a thorough understanding between the companies and enables us to deliver the optimal furnace integrity solution to meet the customer’s needs in the best possible manner,” noted Jyrki Makkonen, Vice President, Smelting Business Line at Metso.
