Hydro restarts aluminium production at Husnes line B
Aluminium producer Norsk Hydro’s Husnes plant in Norway is on its way back to full production for the first time in more than 10 years, after production resumed at the Husnes B line on Tuesday November 24.
Hydro Husnes produces about 95,000 tonnes per year of aluminium via the A line. This will gradually increase to around 195,000 tpy with the 200 electrolysis cells in the one-kilometer-long B line being restarted.
“It is great that the B line at Hydro Husnes is finally producing aluminium again. The restart fits well with Hydro’s strategy of increasing profitability and driving sustainability,” Hydro president and chief executive officer Hilde Merete Aasheim said.
