Metso signed a €27mln five-year contract with Tata Chemical

Metso has entered into a five-year, long-term strategic services partnership agreement with Tata Chemicals (Soda Ash) Partners to repair, rebuild, and service existing pyro-processing equipment and systems in its Green River, Wyoming, USA, operation. The total contract value is approximately €27mln.
Metso will provide Tata Chemicals with a full-service, custom solution for its North American manufacturing facility. The contract covers the rebuilding of 19 existing pyro-processing units over the contract period, which includes the supply of installation labor, training for site personnel, and full-time Metso experts on-site to oversee the execution of the work. The scope of the new agreement for the seven calciners and twelve rotary dryers also includes several modernization and upgrade measures to improve safety, efficiency, and operational flexibility at the Green River facility. A part of the agreement is booked in Metso’s second quarter 2016 orders received, leaving the rest to be booked throughout the agreement period.
