3)RUSAL initiated the development of a data center project at the Nadvoitsy
Aluminium Smelter in the Republic of Karelia.
Not far to the south, in the town of Nadvoitsy
, decades of dumping by an aluminum plant has contaminated drinking- water sources, turning the teeth of the town's children black and rotten.
, a small Russian town near the Finnish border, an estimated 4,000 children have been poisoned by fluoride, which replaces calcium in the body, leaving its victims with blackened, rotting teeth and weakened bones.
UC RUSAL, one of the world s largest aluminium producers, and ELSO Group, a large Russian heating appliances manufacturer, with a leading position in this field, have announced plans to set up a joint business for manufacturing aluminium radiators at the Nadvoitsy aluminium smelter, one of RUSAL s production sites.
It is planned that by 2019 the production site will reach its full design capacity of 4 million radiator sections a year, for which RUSAL will supply 4,000 mt of aluminium annually from its aluminium smelter located in Nadvoitsy.
The lower volume was, in part, caused by the cut of production at the Company's least cost-efficient smelters being the Novokuznetsk, Bogoslovsk, Volkhov, Nadvoitsy
, Kandalaksha and Urals Aluminium Smelters in Russia and the Zaporozhye Aluminium Smelter in Ukraine.
In the framework of the programme, the total capacity curtailments until 2018 will reach 275,000 tonnes of primary aluminium production and will involve the Nadvoitsy
aluminium smelter (NAZ), Bogoslovsk aluminium smelter (BAZ), Volkhov aluminium smelter (VAZ) and Novokuznetsk aluminium smelter (NkAZ).
