Pittsburgh US headquartered Alcoa Corporation has announced USD 51 million projects to increase the production capacity at its Mosjøen smelter in Norway by 14,000 tonnes per year. Alcoa’s Mosjøen location currently has a nameplate capacity of 200,000 tonnes per year, and the investment is expected to increase that capacity to 214,000 tonnes per year by the end of 2026. Amperage to the site’s two potlines will be increased via improved electrical infrastructure, including the installation of new high voltage cabling and switching equipment. The planned investment will also improve the site’s existing anode production processes.The project positions Mosjøen to continue meeting the needs of customers who want Alcoa’s high-quality, low-carbon aluminum. The Mosjøen smelter is fully powered by renewable energy and produces rolling ingots and foundry alloys, including metal for Alcoa’s SustanaTM line, which is the most comprehensive offering of low-carbon products in the aluminum industry.In that brand family, Mosjøen produces EcoLumTM aluminum, which offers less than 4.0 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions (scope 1 and 2) from bauxite mining, alumina refining, and aluminum smelting and casting. It also produces EcoDuraTM aluminum, which includes at least 50 percent recycled content.
