In the 1950s, the Norilsk combine was transferred from the jurisdiction of the Internal Affairs Ministry to the Non-Ferrous Metallurgy Ministry, and the Norillag was liquidated.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The plan for the metals production grew strongly, and this was together with an acute shortage of workers. It was necessary to attract civilian specialists, and labor costs at the Norilsk plant became approximately three times higher than in the middle lane of Russia.

To resolve the issue, they staked on the production mechanization and automation, that is, on the minimum use of manual labor in all processes. The research shop of the combine came up with its own designs and introduced advanced innovations.

Already in the early 1960s, enterprises began to use industrial television. The first samples were delivered at the Zapolyarny mine. Thanks to this prototype of video surveillance, the dispatcher monitored the loading of ore and the movement of underground electric locomotives and could urgently respond to an accident.

Industrial television installations were also used at the Norilsk thermal power plant. This allowed one driver to operate three turbines.

In the History Spot’s previous publication, we told about a residential building built in Norilsk according to a local pilot project.
