The Taiwan aluminium remelt plant consequently becomes a fully owned subsidiary of Hydro.

The plant has a capacity of 75kt/y of extrusion ingot.

“The remelter is positioned in a market of strategic importance to Hydro, especially considering that the Qatalum aluminium plant is expected to reach full production in the fourth quarter this year, with Asia as its main market," says Kjetil Ebbesberg, executive vice president of Hydro's Metal Markets business area.
