Norwegian Norsk Hydro’s aluminum production drops in H1 2019 y-o-y
2019/08/28
Norsk Hydro ASA, a Norwegian aluminum and renewable energy company, reported its bauxite production had a year-on-year decrease of 18.7% to around 2,990 kilotons in the first half of this year. The production of alumina was down by 17.5% year on year to 1,700 kilotons, and that of primary aluminum dropped by 3.5% year on year to approximately 970 kilotons.

According to Norsk Hydro, the firm failed to reach the 2019 target due to the previous ban on the Alunorte alumina plant, reducing the production at Alunorte bauxite project and its partially owned Albras alumina plant.

However, it was understood from Norsk Hydro’s report that the board of the Albras aluminum smelter has decided on May 21st to restart its smelter.
