Yunnan Wenshan Al is set to bring the 150 ktpy phase I of its aluminium project online in late March or early April 2020.
Backed by total investment of RMB 4.2 bln and designed with 500 ktpy capacity, project construction began in March 2019 and will be completed in three phases.
Wenshan Al has a 1.6 mtpy alumina refinery with annual output for 2019 estimated at 1.5 mln t, the same level as last year. The company is looking to expand its alumina capacity to meet anticipated strong demand growth over the next few years.
Mainstream primary aluminium prices stand at RMB14,010~14,110/t ex-works in Guangzhou, falling by RMB40/t from Wednesday.
