Mujović: KAP is a modern factory that the state should support

"We should measure the usefulness of this country by how many workers a factory employs and whether it pays taxes regularly, everything else is pure populism," said the minister. Pejović said that, by installing solar panels, they will soon become completely energy independent from EPCG and that two more factories are planned

The Minister of Energy and Mining, Saša Mujović, today visited the Aluminum Plant in Podgorica (KAP), where he met with the company's management and said that the state should support KAP.

Mujović assessed that it is an extremely modern factory, headed by a management that has a clear vision of development.

The Media Bureau reports that this is also the minister's first visit to the Combine after 2020.

Mujović, as stated, said during the visit that he was pleasantly surprised by what he found on the field, and that this kind of Combine is exactly what Montenegro is missing.

"It is an extremely modern factory, headed by a management that has a clear vision of development, which is the most important thing. In the conversation with Mr. Pejović, I learned about the connection of the company with the automotive industry, and what Kombinat aluminijuma produces can be well implemented from that aspect," he said.

The minister pointed out that Montenegro as a country should be proud of such a company, which, as he said, employs about 350 workers and has an influence on the entire surrounding activities that are connected with it.

"Two megawatts of solar panels have already been installed with the intention of producing up to 12 megawatts of energy. So, it's very high quality work and congratulations to the management. I think that this country should support the Combine, because the usefulness to this country should be measured by how many workers a factory employs and whether it pays taxes regularly, everything else is pure populism," said Mujović, as reported by the Media Bureau.

The owner of Uniprom, Veselin Pejović, after expressing his satisfaction with the minister's visit and emphasizing its importance, said that after an extremely difficult period caused by corona and large investments and investments through the opening of two large factories, they are continuing with the development of KAP.

"Soon, by installing solar panels, we will become completely energy independent from Elektroprivreda Montenegro, and two more factories are planned. The ticket factory with a capacity of 70.000 tons and the Alloy factory with a capacity of 30.000 tons. As I promised when I took over KAP, we did not stop with investments, despite everything that is happening in the world when it comes to the aluminum industry. Also, with the construction of solar panels, our products will receive a green certificate, i.e. a guarantee that our production takes place exclusively from renewable energy choices", said Pejović and explained that in this way CO2 gases are reduced for all products of the Combine, and that they are desirable as such for the automotive industry.
