In a newly built shop briquetting copper-nickel concentrate Kola (a subsidiary of "Norilsk Nickel") pre-commissioning work on the main process equipment.
This is the final step before the commissioning of the first line, which involved both KGMK experts and representatives of foreign and Russian companies supplying process equipment suppliers.
The project for the construction of briquetting plant is part of the modernization program of metallurgical production, realized the Kola Peninsula. The total project cost 2.200 billion rubles.
At its heart — the rejection of obsolete technology pelletizing and sintering pellets and briquetting transition to copper-nickel concentrate. Reconstruction of allowing multiple reduce emissions of sulfur gases in the atmosphere. In addition, the nickel concentrate briquetting technology significantly reduces the cost of production, saves energy, operation and maintenance, equipment repair, and most importantly — significantly increases through extraction of non-ferrous metals in general by the Company.
