Aluminum smelters are always seeking opportunities to increase capacity and reduce energy consumption to survive in today’s brutal competition. At present, 500kA level reduction cell technology becomes the mainstream technology in China. GAMI (Guiyang Aluminum & Magnesium Design & Research Institute Co., Ltd.) has successfully developed GP500+ energy saving cell and the technology has been applied to the first pot line in 2017. This paper focuses on technical developments of GP500+ energy saving cells ranging from shell, superstructure, busbar, lining, cell control system and remote support service. The industrial performance is also included.
