Aludium’s new annealing furnace in Alicante was officially inaugurated during a ceremony on 20 October. Attending the event were Alicante’s mayor Gabriel Echávarri, and Cristina Morenom the city’s Director of Labour and Social Welfare.
The new furnace can hold a batch of three coils, each with a weight of 13.5 tonnes. Two batches of coils can be annealed each day. Installation of the furnace will increase Alicante’s annual annealing capacity to more than 5,500 tonnes.
Powered by natural gas, the state-of-the-art furnace will reduce Aludium’s energy costs and environmental footprint.
