“Right now a priority is development of the mining-ore base, as well as the large-scale modernization of the industrial complex in the Arctic area,” she said. “Besides, it is improvement of the ecology situation, we live now in the Year of Ecology, thus this would be a basic year to change radically the present ecology situation in the Arctic area.”
The company will present its projects in social and economic development of the regions, “including offering comfortable conditions for all the people living in the Far North, to support the country’s main cultural and sports projects, and the resettlement program for Norilsk residents,” she continued.
Investments in geology projects grow by 25% every year, she said, “because we realize that geologically the Arctic area is underdeveloped.”
Another project the company plans presenting at the forum is reconstruction of the Alykel airport in Norilsk.
“This is Russia’s northernmost airport, which requires reconstruction,” the company’s vice president said. “It is a unique project as we shall not close down the airport – the reconstruction will be done in stages.”
Norilsk Nickel will also present own experience in modernization of the company’s infrastructures, she added.
