MHWirth Technology for the Booming Battery Market
MHWirth has been awarded the contract for the delivery of twelve slurry pumps TPM 2200-20 HS.
The pumps will be operating in an autoclave feed process for a nickel-cobalt refinery in Indonesia. There, laterite nickel ore will be processed using the high-pressure acid leaching HPAL technology. Nickel and cobalt are required for the production of next generation’s rechargeable batteries.
The customer, PT. HUASHAN NICKEL COBALT, aims to become the market leader in the production of electric vehicle (EV) battery material for the booming electromobility market.
“This contract forms the next important step of our successful collaboration with Huayou Group (a part of PT. HUASHAN NICKEL COBALT). In a recent project MHWirth delivered eight autoclave feed pumps to Indonesia which are currently installed and commissioned”, states Roy Dyrseth, CCO MHWirth and adds “we are pleased to support the booming EV battery market with MHWirth technology”.
