Terrafame is preparing for the commissioning of its battery chemicals plant by strengthening its commercial organisation.

Multi-metal company, Terrafame is currently building one of the world’s largest battery chemical production plants in Sotkamo, Finland.

The commercial production of battery chemicals will start in early 2021. With the current battery chemistries in use, the plant’s nickel sulphate capacity will be enough for around 1m batteries and the cobalt sulphate capacity for approximately 300,000 electric vehicle batteries per year.

Chemical process engineer, Ismo Huida has been appointed as senior commercial manager, responsible for battery chemicals deliveries and administration.

Huida is transferring to Terrafame from the post of procurement manager at Aurubis Finland. He has previously worked in logistics and supply chain management for metals and chemical industries. At Terrafame, Huida will act as deputy to CCO, Janne Palosaari.

Henrik Hagström has also been appointed as export manager with Terrafame’s export logistics as his area of responsibility. Hagström has worked for a significant time in export and logistics for several companies. Both roles are new.
