RUSAL alloy included in Russian Maritime Register of Shipping

RUSAL alloy included in Russian Maritime Register of Shipping

(Posted on 16/09/21)

RUSAL, a leading global aluminium producer, has announced the inclusion of an aluminium-scandium alloy developed by the Company in the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping.

The classification society of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping has issued amendments to the Rules for the Classification and Construction of Sea-Going Ships, as well as the Rules for Technical Supervision during the Construction of Ships and Manufacture of Materials and Products for Ships. According to these changes, the aluminium-scandium alloy 1581 (Al-Mg-S?), developed by RUSAL, is now included in the relevant sections of the rules, including requirements for welded joints.

The properties of semi-finished products from the new alloy will reduce the weight of ship parts, reduce fuel consumption, and, therefore, minimize impact on the environment.

“The addition of RUSAL's new alloy to the Maritime Register allows engineers to use semi-finished products at the design stage. This is important for such a dynamic and developing industry of shipbuilding in Russia and globally”, said Viktor Mann, Technical Director of RUSAL.

In April, RUSAL launched a new brand of aluminium-scandium solutions - ScAlution. Thanks to their technological, physical and mechanical qualities, alloys contribute to a decrease in vehicle weight, fuel consumption and emissions into the atmosphere. These alloys are in demand across all aluminium-consuming sectors.

RUSAL accounts for about 5.8% of global production of aluminium, 6.5% of alumina production and 44% of RUSAL’s production accounts for value added products.
