Metso Outotec Corporation announced that while the mining industry is currently not directly targeted by the sanctions, sanctions against the banking sector and individuals as well as other restrictions may have an impact on Metso Outotec and customers’ Russia related businesses. It said “Due to the current unclear and changing sanction situation, Metso Outotec has temporarily ceased its deliveries to Russia.” Metso Outotec’s customers in Russia operate in several mining and metals processing sites across Russia. Capital projects are typically long with deliveries taking place over the course of several years. Sales from Russia represented approximately 10% of Metso Outotec’s annual sales in 2021. Metso Outotec does not have own production in Russia, or any material procurement in the country.
