Outokumpu plans to double its ferrochrome production capacity in Finland. The new smelter of the Tornio production facility will enable the production of high-quality ferrochrome with minimal emissions and efficiency of energy consumption.

Ruukki has signed a contract to deliver the drilled piles for the ferrochrome smelter, to manufacture and install the steel structures and load-bearing roof structures, and to deliver the facade panels.

"We rely upon Ruukki’s ability to perform as a steel structure contractor in large-scale, demanding industrial projects. From the customer’s perspective, reliability, delivery capacity, and ensured workplace safety have importance in each stage of the project. These all form a competitive delivery entity." - Chief Project Manager Heikki Pekkarinen from Outokumpu
