Mechel Gets New Equipment

Mechel Group plans to start up the Yuzhuralnikel electric furnace, with a capacity of 12 megawatts, in the first half of this year, Mechel corporate finance chief Sergei Resontov said at the 16th annual CIS metals summit, organized by the Adam Smith Institute.

The enterprise will convert entirely to nickel production employing new technology. Resontov said test and setup operations are being carried out with the new equipment, which was produced by South African Bateman company.

A total of 1 billion rubles ($34.2 million) was invested in the project.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
