Hydro’s primary objective remains to restart operations in a safe and secure manner, gradually progressing production back to normal, and limiting any further impact on customers, suppliers and other partners.
Hydro is continuing the work to ensure relevant supporting IT-functions are operational, with interim workaround solutions being established when needed and possible.
Update on operational status in the business areas:
Energy: Production running as normal
Bauxite & Alumina: Production running as normal
Primary Metal: Production running as normal, with higher degree of manual operation
Rolled Products: Production running as normal, with higher degree of manual operation
Extruded Solutions: Close to normal operations but still a lot of workarounds and local variations from plant to plant. Production in the three business units Extrusion Europe, Extrusion North America and Precision Tubing currently running at an average output of 85 percent. In the Building Systems unit operations are currently at around 60 percent, up from 20 percent on Wednesday last week.
