Our Metals segment’s operations include the extraction and refinement of bauxite into alumina and the production and sale of primary aluminium, alumina and related products. En+ Group’s Metals segment is represented by RUSAL, a low cost, vertically integrated aluminium producer with core smelting operations in Siberia, in close proximity to the Group’s power plants. Metals segment’s aluminium smelters are major consumers of the power produced by the Power segment.

Aluminium is a lightweight metal that has good conductivity and is widely used in various industries. The oxide membrane formed on the surface of aluminium is strong and durable, making it resistant to corrosion and rusting, even after prolonged contact with moisture
Our Metals segment strives to achieve leadership in operational efficiency and is already among the three most cost-effective aluminium producers in the world. In-house R&D, engineering and design capabilities enable the Metals segment to develop new technologies that help to streamline production and cut capital and operation costs.
The new Downstream division was established by the En+Group to develop and improve the efficiency of producing value-added products from aluminium and aluminium- based alloys
Norilsk Nickel is the world’s largest palladium producer and second-largest nickel producer, as well as one of the leading producers of platinum and copper. RUSAL’s shareholding in Norilsk Nickel enables significant diversification of earnings through Norilsk Nickel’s exposure to PGMs and base metals while broadening RUSAL’s strategic opportunities. The Company’s objective is to maximise the value of this investment for all shareholders. In 2021, the Group’s share of profit obtained from Norilsk Nickel accounted for USD 1,762 million (compared to USD 930 million in 2020).
The BEMO project involves the construction of the 3.0 GW Boguchany HPP and the Boguchany aluminium smelter (BoAZ) in the Krasnoyarsk Region in Siberia.
The project includes construction of an aluminium smelter in Taishet in the Irkutsk Region (Eastern Siberia). The Taishet smelter will become one of the largest non-ferrous smelters in Russia and one of the most environmentally friendly aluminium smelters in the world.
