Norwegian aluminium company Norsk Hydro ASAs fully owned subsidiary, Hydro Aluminium AS, has entered into a sales agreement with Sapa AS, a global provider of downstream aluminium solutions, owned 50 percent by Hydro, to supply extrusion ingot
under an open-ended agreement starting in 2017.
The audit however, did identify minor nonconformities, two in the potlines, two in extrusion ingot
production, one in raw materials and one in purchasing.
Norsk Hydro purchased the plant, which produces some 75,000 metric tonnes of extrusion ingot
, catering mainly to Taiwanese clients, in March 2008.
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.

Concentration on the production of two product lines for primary foundry alloys and extrusion ingot
will also bring about significant productivity gains.

Hydros aluminium remelting plant there is thoroughly revamped for EUR 15 million and will start recycling used aluminium products, turning them into new extrusion ingot
for building and construction.
The new contract expands a previous contract between the parties under which Talum already supplies Hydro Aluminium with 50,000 tonnes of extrusion ingot
The remelter has an annual capacity of about 75,000 metric tons of extrusion ingot
, and is mainly serving the Taiwanese market.
In the first stage, to be completed in 2003, the smelter's extrusion ingot
casting capacity will be increased to 80,000 tonnes per year, and in a second stage, to be completed some five years later, the capacity will be further increased to 160,000 tonnes per year, Hydro Aluminium said.
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.
