Metso wins China pellet plant contract

METSO minerals has won a contract for the design, key equipment supply and start-up assistance for a 5 million tonnes a year Grate-Kiln iron ore pelletising plant from International Economic and Trading Corp, Wugang Group, acting for China’s Wuhan Iron and Steel (Group) Corp (WISCO).

Metso said WISCO, one of China’s largest steel producers, selected the Grate-Kilm system for its low operating costs, the ability to use coal as a fuel, and the high pellet quality.
