Might in transportation is light
Aluminium flies in aviation, it rocks softly on waves, it rolls along roads and railroads – enabling affordable mobility at less weight than with common materials. Hydro is one of the leading suppliers of aluminium components to the transportation business all around the world.
- Tubing for heat exchangers
- Foundry alloys
- Sheet and extrusions for further processing
A fast-growing market
The automotive industry is the fastest-growing market segment for aluminium suppliers. Driving the growth is aluminium’s ability to reduce weight, which helps decrease fuel consumption and improves all-around performance in the vehicle.
Its corrosion resistance and weldability also make aluminium attractive in the construction of lightweight trailers and semi-trailers, as well as in seagoing ferries or superstructures for large cruise ships.
