CJSC “CHEK-SU.VK” plans to build a plant in the village Tuim, Shirinsky district of the Republic of Khakassia, for the production of manganese metal using manganese concentrate from the Usinsk mining and processing facilities. Production capacity is 80,000 tons per year. It will fully cover the Russia’s demand for manganese metal, which is essential for smelting high-quality steel.
Manganese metal in the plant will be produced using the latest technology, and the construction itself will begin only after all appropriate examinations are carried out.
The raw material for the plant will be delivered from the Usinsk processing facilities to the terminal in Tuim (130 km), using special four-axle dump trucks, while observing necessary road-use requirements and containing the load from entering the surrounding environment.
After start-up of the plant, the Republic of Khakasia’s budget will receive hundreds of millions of rubles a year in additional contributions.
Furthermore, more than 1,600 jobs will be created in Tuim, along with new infrastructure.
