Nordural and the community

Each year Nordural supports dozens of various community projects.

Nordural is for example the main sponsor of the Akranes football club. The sponsorship program includes both men and women in senior category and children and youth program for boys and girls.

We believe that our success is linked to the health and well-being of the communities around our Nordural plants and offices.


The Helguvik project

We are actively pursuing a new greenfield aluminum reduction project near Helguvik, Iceland, approximately 30 miles (48 kilometers) from the capital city of Reykjavik. Construction activity is significantly curtailed pending confirmation from power suppliers that they will be able to deliver the required power to the project.
