Expanding world´s most climate effective zinc production

We are now expanding the world´s most climate effective zinc smelter in Odda, southern Norway. A historic investment both for Boliden and Norway.  

The expansion enables Odda to almost double the zinc production and at the same time reducing the carbon dioxide intensity by 15 percent from already a world leading position. Most of the facilities will be expanded and alongside we will modernize our processes, increasing digitization and automation. Also, our unique solution for waste handling will be expanded.

Odda is located by Sørfjorden in Hardanger. The expansion project is planned to run between 2021-2024. After completion we make use of new technology and thereby increasing the productivity in Odda. And we will be able to provide much more zinc to be used in buildings, infrastructure and the automotive industry in the most climate effective and sustainable way possible.

Future positions at Boliden Odda

To carry out a project of this size, we will need many talented people with the right skills. In the near future, we will advertise more positions both in the project and in our other operating organization. We will both use external contractors and own personnel in the project. A wide range of competences are needed, not least a variety of engineers and contractors. In the short term, many hundreds of people will be involved in the expansion of Odda. After completion in we make use of new technology and thereby increasing the productivity in Odda. Nonetheless, around 50 new and long term jobs will be created which is very important for the whole community.
