Construction of a copper-nickel ore concentrate shipment facility
The new facility will enable the Company to split its copper-nickel concentrate into low-grade and high-grade.
No low-grade concentrate processing will lead to significant cuts in sulphur dioxide emissions in Nickel. By re-arranging shipments of low-grade concentrate from Kola MMC to a third-party processor, the Company will be able to decommission ore-thermal furnace No 3 in the smelting shop and cut the operating costs.
|Dried high-grade concentrate unit with a capacity||of 150 ktpa|
|2017 CAPEX of||RUB 0.8 bn (ca. USD 14 mln)|
|Outstanding CAPEX of||RUB 4 bn (ca. USD 71 mln)|
- Contract for engineering and equipment supplies signed with Outotec;
- Check-ups and surveys completed, preparation for utility systems dismantling and relocation in progress.
