Norsk Hydro resumes normal aluminum production at Albras JV

Norsk Hydro ASA is ramping up production at its Albras aluminum joint venture with Nippon Amazon Aluminium Co. Ltd. and said May 21 it expects to resume full operations in the second half.

The decision comes after the Federal Court in Belem, Brazil, lifted the production embargo on the company's Alunorte alumina refinery, allowing normal production to resume.

Albras curtailed 50% of its production in April 2018 to 230,000 tonnes of aluminum per year due to limited supply from the Alunorte refinery.

Norsk Hydro owns 51% of Albras, with the remaining 49% held by Nippon Amazon.
