In 2021, investments in the electricity sector as a whole totalled about RUB 30 billion, twice as much as in 2020. Going forward, Nornickel plans to ramp up CAPEX in these projects.
The plant’s capacity has increased from 441 MW to 511 MW.
The upgrade programme covers the replacement of the network infrastructure in the Norilsk Industrial District. The Company is also overhauling its gas infrastructure, with plans to complete the upgrade of a gas pipeline on the right bank of the Yenisei River.
