The Kitimat Modernization Project (KMP) is a new multi-billion dollar fully modernized aluminum smelter located in Kitimat, British Columbia that will utilize the latest in AP Technology to make it one of the most modern smelters in the world and one of the three largest owned by Rio Tinto Alcan (RTA). The new smelter will increase the output to up to 420,000 tonnes annually. RTA provided full notice to proceed in December 2011, and it is expected to be in operation in early 2015.
