Develop overseas resources. We should strengthen the development of copper and cobalt resources in Africa, and nickel and cobalt resources in Indonesia, to accelerate the overseas resource projects, strive for their early landing and early results, which could support domestic manufacturing with overseas resources. Pay special attention to the overseas projects. We will build projects of Huayue, Youshan and Huake on planning in Indonesia, consolidate and strengthen the integrated operation mode of mining and metallurgy in Africa, to support the company's international operation ability with overseas project construction. (Excerpt from the speech of Chen Xuehua, chairman of Huayou Group, at the 2021 Annual Work Conference of Huayou Cobalt)
Recently, the first column in its main furnace workshop of Weda Bay PT Huake Nickel Indonesia in Indonesia was hoisted in place and successfully installed, reaching the first construction node of the completion of civil engineering, marking that the steel structure in the main electric furnace workshop of Huake Nickel officially entered the installation stage.
Huake Project is of pioneering significance, and the production of nickel matte is the supplement of new energy materials. Huake Project is of special significance to the strategic positioning and expansion of the whole park. At the beginning of the Huake Project construction, the rainy season in Indonesia came. Days of torrential rain paused the construction and shortened the leaving time for completion. Facing with multiple unfavorable factors, such as tight construction period with heavy tasks, complex geological conditions, difficult detailed survey work, pandemic and shortage of on-site construction personnel, the project team held many discussion meetings to continuously optimize the construction scheme. Through the efforts of all staff, the detailed survey and pile test work have been completed smoothly and on schedule. Huake Project's successful reaching of the steel structure installation node encouraged all project members' confidence to complete the project construction as soon as possible.
Huake Project bears the heavy responsibility of "two leadings" of Huayou Group. Nickel resource development is the main battlefield for Huayou's transformation and upgrading, and is the guarantee for Huayou to achieve high-quality development. Standing in the main position of Huayou Cobalt's second venture to startup, Huake team, who is fighting more bravely, will stimulate themselves and seize every minute to spare no efforts to win the next tough battle!
