At present, the annual production of cathode copper is 148.0 thousand tons. In the coming years, it is planned to increase the volume of copper production by several times.
Within the framework of the Cluster, the goal was set to bring the volume of deep processing of copper to 80%, with the release of final products with high added value.
Priority areas for the Cluster’s development are:
- production of end products from copper with high added value (cable and wire products, pipes, fittings, copper powder, spare parts and chargers for electric cars, elements of renewable energy sources, etc.);
- provision of cluster members with chemical reagents and substances, as well as equipment and mechanisms produced in the Republic of Uzbekistan;
- training, retraining and advanced training of personnel for the Cluster, as well as expanding the scale of experimental and design and scientific research in these areas.
In order to coordinate ongoing activities, make proposals on the strategy and main directions of the Cluster’s activities, the Copper Industry Cluster Development Service was established at JSC “Almalyk MMC”.
Within the framework of the cluster establishment and development work, JSC “Almalyk MMC” invites interested persons and companies to participate as cluster members.
