Finnfjord - Metal Production
Finnfjord AS, one of the world´s most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly producers of ferrosilicon, is located in Troms County in the far north of Norway. Finnfjord has three electrical reduction furnaces with a production capacity of around 100 000 tons of ferrosilicon and 20 000 tons of silica, and an energy recovery plant with an annual capacity of 340 GWh electrical power.
The SFI centre's research activities lie within the core activities for our company. It is expected that the SFI activities will bring new knowledge, which will be applied, directly in the production of ferrosilicon and to improve productivity and performance. As such, the SFI will be instrumental in a healthy and sustainable economic business development for Finnfjord. We possess skilled personnel, who will participate in relevant projects, and they will be able to convert the obtained scientific results into practical operation and consequently reduced emissions. Environment and energy are common challenges for the metal producing industry in Norway, and well suited for joint research efforts.
So far, the main contribution to the SFI has been on planning PAH activities that will take place in 2016, as well as participation in various committees.
