On 1st of June AMS and STAMI held an hands on PIMEX course hosted by Hydro Aluminium Sunndal. The aim was to boost the use of PIMEX at our plant also to get more comfortable using the equipment.
We started in a classroom with plant presentation on how each plant has used the PIMEX until now and what challenges have come up.
Statens arbeidsmiljøinstitutt (STAMI) did an introduction on what is new with the equipment and general use of the PIMEX. After that everyone started up there equipment, we had Nils Petter Skaugset and Ole Synnes from STAMI to help with the start ups and smaller fixes.
We also had demonstration of heat stress measurements and did some ergonomics measurements in the potline. Everyone that wanted to measure under the supervision of STAMI was able to.
This is a follow up from the PIMEX project 2006-2012.
Plants and partisipats in the workshop: Alcoa Lista: Dagfinn Kroslid, Hydro Aluminium Årdal: Ingvill Eldegard & Elise Fretheim, Hydro Aluminium Høyanger: Ingrid Espe, Hydro Aluminium Karmøy: Rune Optun & Kjell Olsen, Hydro Aluminium Sunndal: Jan Olav Polden & Hans Magne Haugen, Hydro Aluminium Husnes: Synnove Olderkjar & Morten Vatterdal, Rio Tinto á Íslandi: Hildur Atladottir

Hilde Merete Assheim was asked: What is the most important contribute from politicians to strengthen the future of industry in Norway?
- I know the aluminum industry well. It is sold at the same price no matter where it is produced. The important thing for Norwegian businesses is to have the conditions that do not oblige us cost our competitors do not have. It is a paradox that Norway pay for CO2 costs in electricity prices, although we fully rely on hydropower. Without coverage for this additional cost, we find that water-based aluminum production in Norway will be phased out in favor of aluminum production in areas based on power with CO2 emissions, but without CO2 costs.
