Alcoa Augmented North American Casting Capability

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Alcoa Corporation announced a new project aimed at increasing the casting capabilities at its Deschambault smelter in Canada. The construction on the project is expected to commence soon. The company plans an investment of around $8 million in the project, which will add standard ingots to its capability. The project will be fully completed in the initial quarter of 2023.

According to company press release, the new casting equipment will be constructed in the existing building. It will complement the two existing vertical casting pits at the site which exclusively deal with T-bar ingots. The addition of standard ingot casting to its capabilities will allow greater flexibility for alloying in smaller batches. Each standard ingot will weigh approximately 10.5 kilograms, it said.

Kelly Thomas, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, Alcoa said that the company is working directly with a customer to bring the production capacity online to meet specific needs in the North American market.

The Deschambault smelter, with a nameplate capacity of 287,000 metric tons of aluminum per year, had recently completed the installation of additional electrical infrastructure aimed at enhancing its production capacity. The smelter celebrates three decades of operation this year.
