Norsk Hydro: Produksjon gjennopptatt ved Paragominas og Alunorte3.7.2020 17:00:00 CEST | Pressemelding
Strømtilførselen til Hydros bauksittgruve Paragominas i Parà nord i Brasil har blitt gjenopprettet og produksjonen har startet opp igjen. Produksjonen ved Hydros aluminaraffineri Alunorte vil som følge av dette også bli normalisert. Tre høyspentmaster veltet 20. juni og førte til strømbrudd for Paragominas. Strømbruddet stanset midlertidig produksjonen ved gruven. Høyspentmastene har nå blitt reparert og strømtilførelsen er gjenopprettet. Det var ingen personskader, miljøskader eller skader på produksjonsutstyr relatert til strømbruddet. Hydro samarbeider med lokale myndigheter for å finne årsaken til hendelsen. Foreløpige undersøkelser tyder på at deler fra mastene har blitt stjålet og at dette forårsaket at mastene veltet.

Norsk Hydro: Production resumed at Paragominas and Alunorte3.7.2020 17:00:00 CEST | Press release
The power supply to Hydro’s Paragominas bauxite mine, in the state of Pará in northern Brazil, has been restored, allowing production to restart. As a result, production is being ramped up at Hydro’s Alunorte alumina refinery. On June 20, three power transmission towers overturned, cutting the power supply to the mine and temporarily halting production. The transmission towers have been repaired, and the power has been restored. There were no personnel injuries, damage to other production assets or impact on the nearby environment related to the power outage. The company is cooperating with local authorities to determine the cause of the incident. Preliminary findings indicate that parts were stolen from the towers causing them to overturn.
