UC RUSAL Sverdlovsk Region-Based Smelters Spend More on Power

1 September 2011 (09:23)

The share of power-related expenses in the prime cost of aluminum produced at UC RUSAL Bogoslovsky smelter rose by 45% in the first half of 2011; the figure went up by 42% at the company’s Ural smelter as well due to the growing electric power fares: prices went up by 51% and 32%, respectively.

The growing power expenses have to do with the energy sector reform that was conducted in the first half of this year. As a result, the expenses of all the power consumers in the Russian Federation have gone up considerably. Our company is doing its best to minimize the negative impact of growing electricity prices on the performance of our enterprises,’ says UC RUSAL’s official PR representative in Ural Federal District Roman Lukichev.
