Hydro’s Karmoy technology pilot in full operation

This new pilot plant  adjacent to Hydro’s existing aluminum plant at Karmøy entered in operation end of June.

The goal of the pilot is to test parts of Hydro’s new technology which is the world’s most climate and energy  efficient aluminum electrolysis technology. It has  the lowest CO2 footprint and will use 15% less energy during production compared to the world average in aluminium production.

“The technology that Hydro has developed represents a quantum leap for climate-friendly and green industry”, says Hydro President and CEO Svein Richard Brandtzæg. “This is a technological breakthrough. No one has managed to produce aluminum with such low energy consumption and high productivity as Hydro will with full-scale production

We are proud that NKM Noell Special Cranes  could participate to this challenge.

NKM Noell was awarded the turn-key delivery – design, fabrication  of  :

If the world’s production of aluminum was made with the technology that Hydro has now developed, it would save energy equivalent to
Norway’s annual production of hydropower.

ITER Council milestone #50 successfully achieved . WELL DONE to ALL

It was a display of Titans, with no less than 1,000 tonnes of steel and concrete test loads attached to the giant hoists

As the world mobilizes to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus,

REEL and REEL NKM NOELL  stand together with all their 2’300 employees, with all their customers and suppliers.

ITER : Upending the steel cradle

Travelling the entire length of the assembly space (~ 170 metres), the REEL overhead cranes will be the workhorses

Some news from ITER : load tests on the assembly bridge cranes

In this second phase of testing, the bridge cranes will be fitted with two 350-tonne test loads
