Verkhnyaya Pyshma (Sverdlovsk region)
In the copper capital of the Urals - the city of Verkhnyaya Pyshma - Metallurgist Day is celebrated in a special mood. This year the town-forming enterprise JSC Uralelectromed celebrates its 85th anniversary, and the city celebrates its 165th anniversary.
“Now Uralelectromed is rightfully considered one of the flagships of non-ferrous metallurgy not only in Russia, but also in the world. The implementation of large investment projects, such as the modernization of electrolysis production, allowed us last year to produce a record 400 thousand tons of cathode copper for the enterprise, - said Alexey Korolev, chief engineer of Uralelectromed JSC. “But the main wealth is our people, a team that preserves labor traditions established 85 years ago and confidently responds to modern challenges.”
Today at the city stadium a traditional bright action took place - the carnival procession "Anniversary souvenir". It was attended by 23 divisions of Uralelectromed JSC and 11 collectives of enterprises and organizations of Verkhnyaya Pyshma. In the colorful columns, viewers saw "Cosmic Explosion", "Laboratory of Miracles", "Gypsy Camp", "Game of Thrones", characters from Bazhov's tales and much more.
“We are already holding the 19th carnival in Verkhnyaya Pyshma. It is a big colorful holiday that unites colleagues and citizens. Today, the organizations of Verkhnyaya Pyshma and numerous columns of our enterprise present colorful mini-performances for the anniversary of the city and the plant, which they have been preparing for several months, "explained Miroslav Medvedev, Director for General Affairs of JSC Uralelectromed.
For several hours Verkhnyaya Pyshma turned into Rio de Janeiro. A huge "revived" car was presented to the audience by the Transport Department of Uralelectromed JSC.
The employees of the copper-smelting shop of the enterprise were reincarnated as the ancient Egyptians. For the first time, employees of the Polymetal Production Branch of Uralelectromed JSC from Kirovgrad took part in the carnival. The factory workers brought the Black Pearl and Captain Jack Sparrow to Verkhnyaya Pyshma.
The central laboratory of JSC "Uralelectromed" has deployed a real "Laboratory of Miracles" at the stadium. After the demonstration of the chemical processes, the guests of the holiday watched the "Space Explosion" with the participation of the plant workers of the charge acceptance and processing workshop of JSC "Uralelectromed".
The story of how Vovka ended up in the Copper Kingdom was “written” in their stage performance by the workers of the power department.
The jubilee flash mob became the culmination of the festive action. Hundreds of factory workers lined up first in the form of the number 85, and then - 165. In the evening, the townspeople will have a big concert with the participation of Russian pop stars. The groups "White Eagle", "Beetles" and the singer Slava will appear on the stage. Around midnight, residents and guests of the city will see a panoramic 10-minute fireworks display with a height of rise of "lights" up to 200 meters.
