Alcoa to Close Point Henry Aluminum Smelter and Rolling Mills in Australia
Feb 17 14
Alcoa announced it will permanently close its Point Henry aluminum smelter and two rolling mills in Australia. The smelter and an adjacent rolling mill are located in Geelong, Victoria. The second mill and a recycling facility are located in Yennora, New South Wales. The smelter will close in August 2014 and the rolling mills by the end of 2014. The Portland Aluminum smelter in Victoria will continue normal operations, as will Alcoa of Australia's bauxite mining and alumina refining operations in Western Australia. Total 2014 restructuring-related charges associated with the closures outlined above are expected to be between $250 million and $270 million after-tax and non-controlling interest. The closures will reduce Alcoa's global smelting capacity by 190,000 metric tons and reduce Alcoa's can sheet capacity by 200,000 metric tons. Including the closure of the Point Henry smelter, Alcoa has announced closures or curtailments representing 551,000 metric tons of smelting capacity, exceeding the 460,000 metric tons placed under review in May 2013. Once the Point Henry closure is complete, Alcoa will have total smelting operating capacity of approximately 3,760,000 metric tons, with approximately 655,000 metric tons, or 17%, of high cost capacity offline.
