Trimet France Puts Continuous Caster into Operation

With an annual production capacity of around 60000 t of rolling ingots, the system represents a strategic addition to the product portfolio of the facility in the French Alps. Around 145000 t of primary aluminum are produced here annually. In addition to  rolling ingots, aluminum wire for the energy and automotive industries is mainly  produced by some 500 employees in Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne and the sister plant in Castelsarrasin, in southwestern France. Trimet took over the plants at the end of 2013 and has since consistently worked toward full utilization of the production capacity. The recommissioning of the continuous caster after more than five years marks an important step on the road to full utilization of the plant. Last autumn, the electrolysis production was returned to near maximum capacity with the recommissioning of production line “F.”
