The company operates in 19 countries over five continents and employs over 72,000 people across its international operations and offices. The company is incorporated in Jersey, where it has its financial center, but its headquarters are in Moscow, Russian Federation.
In 2015/16 RUSAL, after a strong selection which involved all the major international foundry equipment suppliers, chose SAVELLI as the main partner-supplier for the development of its new Green Sand iron and steel Foundry.
This important investment was decided in order to produce spare and wear parts (steel and iron castings) for the machines that extract the bauxite from RUSAL mines.
Consequentially during the second half of 2016, SAVELLI, after the necessary initial Engineering phase, installed a complete new automatic horizontal flask molding line (flask’s size of 1.500x1.300x400/400mm, 25 molds per hour), its sand preparation and return system with capacity of 75 tons/hour and the shakeout system for steel and iron castings.
The sand preparation plant was appositely designed and developed in order to operate with 2 different types of sand for steel and iron castings.
The SAVELLI equipment was installed in Achinsk and it entered in full production in May 2017.
The official new Foundry inauguration was celebrated by RUSAL Board and the local authorities in June 2017.
