The audit however, did identify minor nonconformities, two in the potlines, two in extrusion ingot
production, one in raw materials and one in purchasing.
The remelter has an annual capacity of about 75,000 metric tons of extrusion ingot
, and is mainly serving the Taiwanese market.
The project's first extrusion ingot
line has been in operation from the beginning of January 2010, and the remaining production lines will be completed and handed over to Qatalum operations in the coming months.
10220121 Aluminum extrusion ingot
NOTE TO EDITORS: Alcan has been a long-term North American raw material supplier of aluminium foundry ingot and extrusion ingot
SCOPE Alloying purchased aluminum metals Aluminum alloys made from scrap or dross Aluminum billet made from purchased aluminum Aluminum billet made in integrated secondary smelting and rolling mills Aluminum extrusion ingot
The first stage is to be completed by the end of 2003, adding annual capacity of an 80,000 tonnes of extrusion ingot
The new remelting facility will produce extrusion ingot
using aluminium scrap, serving customers and offering conversion service to Hydro's fast growing market for extrusion ingots
in Spain and Portugal.
It has also begun construction of a remelting plant in Kentucky, in the US, which will convert aluminium scrap into primary-quality extrusion ingot
for the American automotive and building industries.
The project, the largest initial phase greenfield aluminum smelter ever built, began production of extrusion ingots
and foundry alloy in late 2009 in the Mesaieed Industrial City in Qatar.
Production at the end of phase one, anticipated to be completed by the fourth quarter this year, will reach the level of 585,000t of primary aluminium, to be shipped as value added aluminium casthouse products, such as extrusion ingots
, or billets, and foundry alloys.
The deal was a result of Alba and Sapa working closely together since the end of 2009 to develop a strong business relationship to supply extrusion ingots
