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 EUR 27 million.

Metso will provide Tata Chemicals, one of the world's leading producers of high-quality soda ash, 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. 

"This contract provides Tata Chemicals a long-term partnership with a leading provider of energy-efficient solutions. Metso has decades of experience servicing the mining industry and will be a valued partner to Tata Chemicals," says Martin Keighley, CEO & Managing Director at Tata Chemicals North America.

"The partnership with Tata Chemicals embraces our joint desire to have deep customer insights and engaging relationships with all stakeholders leading to sustainability in operations," says Terry J. Wilkins, SVP, Market Areas USA & Canada at Metso.

Metso designs, engineers, supplies, and services pyro-processing equipment and systems that increase the economic value of ores, minerals, waste, and related materials - while also protecting the environment. With this latest partnership, Metso continues to be well positioned in its long-term strategy to expand service operations in the western USA mining and industrial community, including Wyoming, Utah, and  northern Nevada, where a significant and broad installed base exists.
