The company said it has kicked off negotiations with employee representatives with regards to the plan and is targeting the transfer of between 70 and 80 Outotec employees.

“By outsourcing part of our engineering activities, we will create more flexibility to our organisation and decrease Outotec's fixed costs in the long run,” metals, energy and water business unit head Kalle Harkki said, adding that Citec already has an existing presence and customer base in Germany and Finland.

The planned outsourcing will not have an impact on Outotec's financial guidance for this year, it said.
