Albras completed the resumption of production (ramp-up) on line 1 after the shutdown, in early March this year, caused by a fire in an electrical transformer.

The resumption of line 1 began in May after the electrical fault repair work, and involved about 120 own and contracted employees.

"The conclusion of the ramp-up on line 1 allows us to take our next step, which is the resumption of Albras' normal production capacity in all four lines," says João Batista Menezes, president from Albras.

Albras has a total production capacity of 460,000 tons per year and is a joint venture between Hydro and Nippon Amazon Aluminum Co. Ltd.
