Rusal launches new foundry complex

Rusal launches new foundry complex

(Posted on 18/06/20)

RUSAL, a leading global aluminium producer, has announced the commissioning of a new foundry complex at the Boguchansky aluminium smelter with a capacity of 120 thousand tonnes of alloys per year.

The new foundry by the Italian company Properzi will produce a qualitatively new product - high silicon aluminium alloy with increased strength, which is commonly used in the automotive industry for the manufacture of wheels, engine units and various spare parts. Demand for this product is strong in markets such as Japan, Indonesia, Turkey, South Korea, Germany, and the United States.

The new complex is fully automated, producing ingots through continuous casting technology which eliminates the formation of any slag inclusions and other defects inherent in traditional casting methods.

RUSAL have invested over 600 million rubles in the project.

"The new foundry complex at the Boguchansky aluminium smelter, the most modern enterprise in the industry, will significantly expand the VAP line. The new foundry will produce high quality alloys for the automotive industry, which are used in the manufacture of key automotive parts and units. As foreign markets recover, the demand for these products will continue to grow," said RUSAL’s CEO Evgenii Nikitin.

In 2019, the Company accounted for about 5.9% of global production of aluminium and 6.3% of alumina production. RUSAL's offices are operating in 20 countries all over the world and across 5 continents. RUSAL common stock is traded at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
