Boguchany Aluminium Smelter is one of Russia’s largest and most technologically advanced metallurgical companies. Phase 1 production facilities of the Boguchany smelter were launched in 2016.

The smelter forms part of the BEMO, a 50:50 joint venture of RUSAL and RusHydro.

Aside from Boguchany Amulinium Smelter, BEMO also includes Boguchany HPP. The two plants form the largest production complex conducting aluminium production with its own hydro power generation.

Once completed, the smelter will boast 672 RA-300B electrolysis cells, each with a daily capacity of 2.4 tonnes of aluminium.

Development plans

The second half of Phase 1 production was launched in Q1 2019 (149 ktpa of primary aluminium; 168 electrolysis cells).
