:: Pechiney Reaches an Agreement for Energy Supply with Eskom of South Africa and Paves the Way for its First AP50 Smelter Project

Aluminium Pechiney, a subsidiary of Pechiney of France, has reached an agreement with Eskom of South Africa in respect of a multi-year energy supply contract for the operation of an aluminium smelter in the Industrial Development Zone of Coega in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa (near Port Elizabeth).

This agreement is a very significant step in the process of establishing an aluminium smelter in Coega and opens the road for further discussions with Government, potential partners and local communities before a final go-ahead can be given to Aluminium Pechiney's 2005 Aluminium Smelter project. The smelter will use Aluminium Pechiney's latest AP50 technology and produce around 460, 000 metric tonnes per year of primary aluminium.
