In the second half of 2008, due to the continued instability of the Korean won against the US dollar, the depreciation was too fast, and the Korean alloy aluminum sheet market was sluggish. BNG Steel delayed the procurement of equipment and planned to delay the construction period of the plant for six months. At present, the company has resumed its construction plan, and the progress rate has reached 90%. It is reported that some equipment will be purchased from March to September 2009. It is expected to be basically completed in October and enter the trial operation stage. It is expected to be officially put into production operation in January 2010.
Norilsk Nickel, the world's largest nickel producer, said on Monday that it would suspend two other nickel mines in Australia, which could not continue to operate because of the low nickel prices.
The company will immediately suspend the production of the BlackSwan and LakeJohnston mines, and will lay off 330 people on March 1st, leaving only a small number of employees to guard and maintain the mine. The nickel production of these two mines last year was about 25,000 tons. In November last year, the company suspended production of the Cawse mine and Waterloo mine, also in Australia, as nickel prices continued to fall. Nickel is one of the main raw materials for the production of alloy aluminum sheets. Last year, steel prices fell sharply by 40%.
