Development

The Novokuznetsk smelter is working on the enhancement of alloy production.

In 2008-2010 the facility mastered the production of new kinds of alloys (billets for automotive industry and ferrous alloys for aluminium shape producers).

In 2011, the plant’s casthouse was equipped to drive the output of billets. Due to this measure, alloy output has reached 70% of total production.

In 2012, the construction of a pilot area for electrolytic technology at pre-baked anodes started. In 2016 the construction of the pilot area for “Clean Soederberg” technology also commenced. As part of the modernization program, all electrolytic equipment at the plant will be upgraded.
