Who named Nadezhda?

August 07, 2020

22 thousand people worked on the construction of the Nadezhdinsky metallurgical plant, besides foreign specialists.

Finnish companies Outokumpo Oy, Rauma-Repola and Alstrem also signed contracts for detailed design, supply and adjustment of equipment. The general designer was the Norilskproekt institute, the subcontractor for the production line was the Leningrad Gipronickel.

The Nadezhdinsky plant name appeared at the suggestion of the chief construction engineer Alexey Kozyura. The Second nickel name did not fit either in scale or in the range of products: in addition to nickel in matte, the plant also produced anode copper. Since the beginning of 1974, according to the protocol of the Non-Ferrous Metallurgy minister, the Second nickel plant was officially named the Nadezhda metallurgical plant.

The future plant had no analogues in the world at that time, and it was impossible to rely on ready-made schemes and methods, even partially

The Nadezhda’s construction was covered by the At the Arctic Construction Site profile multi-circulation newspaper. No need to clarify what kind of construction was meant. The first large circulation issue was released on March 14, 1974.

In 1981, the builders presented the Norilsk Combine director with a symbolic key to the Nadezhda.
