“Last year was a turning point for Hydro. Partly because we left the crisis behind as a stronger company and partly because the completion of Qatalum Hydro as a key player places it in the top quarter of global primary aluminum production. But above all because the takeover of Vale's aluminum business in Brazil ushers in a new era in our history, ”Brandtzæg wrote in his letter to the shareholders.
“Agenda 2010 - our two-year program to deal with the financial crisis - was successfully ended. It is now being replaced by a new objective: Hydro should reach the highest level in the global aluminum industry, ”said Brandtzæg.
