JSE-listed aluminium products producer Hulamin on Monday reported that its Camps Drift hot finishing mill, in Pietermaritzburg, has been repaired and recommissioned, 46 days after initial component failure.

The company said it had lost 25 000 t of production during the period.

Further, available inventory has been processed and the maintenance to the Camps Drift remelt, which was pulled forward to coincide with the breakdown, has been completed as planned.

Hulamin said it had identified the cause of the failure, which would support its insurance claim in respect of cost of damage and business interruption.
