INP made control scheme modifications on four Siemens rectifiers used on the copper electrolysis line at the New Boliden Copper Refinery in Pori, Finland.  The rectifiers were rated at 240 volts and 26,000 amps.  The project was completed in six days with less than two hours of total down time. 

INP’s work allowed New Boliden to increase copper production at the refinery by 2,400 tons per year.
