Kyshtym Electrolytic Copper Plant has finished assembling two rows of baths (40 baths each) in the copper electrolyses shop.
The final stage of the modernization project was the assembly of power network.
To connect the new baths to the grid the whole manufacturing process had to be suspended for 10 hours.
In April the company will receive the last batch of the machinery – 4 new conveyers.
Following the modernization of the shop, KMEZ will be able to produce 140 thousand tons of copper cathodes per year.
Investments in the project totaled 380 million rubles. (Ukrainian metal)
