Production at Paragominas bauxite mine has started, and alumina production is now being ramped up at Hydro’s Alunorte alumina refinery.
Based on a technical assessment, Hydro halted operation of the pipeline for extended maintenance in August to replace a section of the pipeline earlier than scheduled.
During the extended maintenance period, production at Alunorte had been reduced to a level between 35-45 percent of full capacity to balance bauxite inventories.
