Albchrome extends maintenance work at two ferro-chrome plants amid weak demand
Albania-based chrome ore miner and high carbon ferro-chrome smelter Albchrome has extended the maintenance period of two of its furnaces for an additional three months, the company said on Friday September 6.
Albchrome is undertaking maintenance at one furnace at its Burrel plant and another at its Elbasan plant. Both plants are only operating at 50% capacity during the works, according to a company spokesman.
The two plants have a combined capacity of 75,000 tonnes per year, the spokesman said.
