Pot rooms for Helguvík aluminium smelter

Iceland Prime Contractor is handling the construction of the pot rooms for the Nordurál aluminium smelter at Helguvík. The project involves the construction of the pot rooms themselves, as well as construction site set-up, groundwork, casting, pre-casting of units, steel construction, cladding, and various finishing tasks.

The total cost for the first phase of the smelter, which will be brought into use before year-end 2010, amounts to ISK 70 to 80 billion. Based on current aluminium prices, the estimated export value once the first phase is in full operation is approximately ISK 35 billion per year. The plant will employ some 400 workers, and derived or indirect jobs in the locality are estimated at an additional 600. The Helguvík plant will be the first aluminium smelter in the world to be run entirely on geothermal energy.
