RUSNANO and JSC Holding IDGC Partner with Alcoa to Form a Nanocoating JV

A Memorandum of Intent has been signed by JSC Holding Inter-regional Distribution Grid Companies (JSC Holding IDGC), OJSC RUSNANO and Alcoa to set up a joint venture (JV) to develop and produce nanocoatings.

The new JV project will manufacture anti-icing nanocoatings for use in ground wires, cables and other parts of power transmission lines. In addition, the JV will produce advanced cables and wires with enhanced anti-icing and conductivity features for JSC Holding IDGC. RUSNANO and Alcoa will be responsible for installing a pilot manufacturing line for nano-coatings application. As a part of the project, JSC Holding IDGC will support R&D, testing and new product certification.

The major issue faced by power engineers in Russia is the icing and breakage of power transmission lines because of bad weather conditions. This problem is expected to be fixed through the development of nanocoatings and production of advanced cables. The production of next-generation cables and wires will help meet the demands of Russia’s power distribution grid. The joint venture will provide new opportunities for the Russian aluminum industry.
