The new art object shows the air temperature and is visible from the city.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. A thermometer with a luminous Nornickel logo on the 200-meter chimney at the Kola MMC claims to be one of the largest in the country.

According to the Kn51.ru online portal, a 77-meter light structure in the form of a thermometer is installed on the 200-meter chimney of the Kola MMC power supply center’s boiler and steam department. The art object with the Nornickel logo was designed and assembled by the KMMC order. The giant thermometer is currently undergoing setting procedure.

The boiler and steam department head, Evgeny Veselov, told that the tallest object on the Monchegorsk site was first put in order, having its outer coating restored:

“We installed architectural lighting, stylized as a thermometer that displays the ambient temperature. It is designed to work in aggressive environments: atmospheric precipitation, ultraviolet radiation”.

There are impressive thermometers in several Russian cities. The height of Monchegorsk one is 77 meters, Murmansk – 65 meters. The air temperature meter at the industrial site of the Kola MMC became the highest in the Kola Arctic and became one of the largest thermometers in the country.

The thermometer mounted on the KMMC chimney differs from analogues in Murmansk, Ufa and Kazan also by the presence of a luminous logo measuring 5.5 by 8.5 meters. The art object decorates not only the industrial site – it can be seen from the city. Minus temperatures on the thermometer scale will be reflected in blue, plus – in red. Adjusters guarantee the accuracy of his readings. Work on setting up a new landmark of Monchegorsk is close to completion.

Earlier, the Kola MMC revived its industrial sites with the symbols of the Arctic.
