50 years since the start of ferrosilicon production

March 15, 1962, at 1:00 pm, furnace number 1 at the then called K/S A/S Fesil Nord was put into operation. The total capacity at the factory was 12.000 ton/year, and the company employed 132 workers.

Today, Finnfjord can boast a capacity of 100.000 tons/year, with 125 employees. A tremendous improvement in productivity.

Later in 2012 a new era at Finnfjord will begin, with the start of power production from the energy recovery plant.
