Votorantim approved the development of a 10.6kt Ni/a FeNi smelter at Niquelandia in November 2006. Capital costs were put at R$558M, with an additional R$180M for a coke boiler for the generation of electricity. Construction commenced in 2007 and commissioning was anticipated in June 2009. However, the project was placed on hold in 2010 and has essentially been dormant since.
