RABAT, March 13 (Xinhua) -- Morocco's phosphate producer OCP and Finland's mining technology company Outotec have signed a contract worth 80 million euros (90.2 million U.S. dollars) for building sulphuric acid plant for fertiliser production, local media reported on Wednesday.
This plant will be built near OCP's major production site in the city of Jorf Lasfar, the financial daily L'Economiste said.
Outotec's delivery includes the engineering, procurement and construction of the plant, which is based on Outotec's sulphur 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.
With more than 20 acid plants and several mining sites, OCP Group is a global fertiliser producer and leader in the phosphate industry.
