Abstract: during the epidemic period, China's aluminum industry in production and construction projects, from pressing the production and construction "suspension key" to go all out to fight the epidemic, to continue to improve the situation of prevention and control of enterprises to resume work and production one after another, is now running out of the "acceleration" of industry production and construction to ensure that the annual target is met on schedule.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, strict prevention and control measures across the country have led to the temporary closure of most domestic factories after the Spring Festival holiday, especially aluminum processing enterprises, with the exception of some enterprises that produce disposable aluminum foil lunch boxes, almost all of them have temporarily suspended production. However, in March, with the continuous improvement of the domestic epidemic prevention and control situation, key industries and leading enterprises, including foreign-funded enterprises, have resumed work and production one after another. In particular, since mid-March, governments at all levels have paid close attention to the work of resuming work and production. 72% of the migrant workers who left first-and second-tier cities two weeks before the Spring Festival have returned to work before March 10. Hubei, the region with the worst epidemic in China, also issued a notice on March 11 that enterprises will resume work and production in an orderly manner by division, classification, classification, and time-sharing. Japanese carmaker Honda said on March 11 that some workers at its Wuhan plant had returned to work and began to resume production of a small number of cars while conducting a comprehensive inspection of its production equipment. According to the directive spirit of not slackening efforts in the prevention and control of the current epidemic and grasping both hands on the resumption of work and production, around April 5, China's aluminum industry production will fully return to the normal level. During the epidemic period, China's aluminum industry in production and construction projects, from pressing the production and construction "suspension key" to go all out to fight the epidemic, to continue to improve the situation of enterprises to resume work and production one after another, is now running out of the "acceleration" of industry production and construction to ensure that the annual target is met on schedule.
Enterprises in production are busy returning to work and production.
Strive to reach the production standard as soon as possible
After taking the prescribed holidays, the large aluminum enterprises and state-owned enterprises in production all grasp the prevention and control of the epidemic on the one hand, act in strict accordance with the relevant regulations, resume work and production on the other, do their utmost to overcome all difficulties, and strive to reach the standard and reach production as soon as possible. The aluminum processing and deep processing plants above the scale that Chinalco belongs to have resumed work and production on schedule, such as Northeast Light Alloy Co., Ltd., Southwest Aluminum (Group) Co., Ltd., Northwest Aluminum processing Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Yuefeng Aluminum Technology Co., Ltd., etc. Hundreds of enterprises in the industry have returned to work and production one after another, rolling up their sleeves and wearing masks to work hard.
On January 6 this year, the Cosco Shipping Company "Qushanhai" ship loaded with 55000 tons of bauxite set out from the Port of Conakry (Conkry) in Guinea and crossed the three oceans for 49 days. It was successfully moored at berth No. 16 of the third Company of Rizhao Port at 9: 00 a.m. on March 25. This is the first bauxite mine of Chinalco Guinean Bofa (Bofa). It is the result of sincere cooperation among Chinalco, COSCO Shipping Company and Rizhao Port. It is of great significance in the history of Chinalco's development of Guinean bauxite. At present, about 10 Chinese companies are in talks with the Guinean government on bauxite mining, but only two have officially mined and shipped the ore back to the country, namely Shandong Weiqiao and Chinalco.
According to public reports, Other large enterprises and many small and medium-sized enterprises such as Shandong Nanshan Aluminum Co., Ltd., Weiqiao Aluminum Power Co., Ltd., Zhongwang Aluminum Group, Huajian Aluminum Co., Ltd., Midas Aluminum Co., Ltd., Yanzhou Mining Light Alloy Co., Ltd., Yuefeng Aluminum Technology Co., Ltd., Nannan Aluminum processing Co., Ltd., Yinhai Aluminum Co., Ltd., Yunnan Aluminum Co., Ltd., Mingtai Aluminum Co., Ltd., Xingfa Aluminum Co., Ltd., Thousands of enterprises, including Guangya Aluminum Co., Ltd., have also resumed some or all of their work and production.
It should be specially mentioned here that when returning to work and production, all the staff of Jiangsu Yuefeng Aluminum processing Co., Ltd. comprehensively and conscientiously implemented General Secretary Xi Jinping's instructions during his inspection, did a good job in resuming production, and strived to build the world's top aluminum processing enterprises. Yuefeng Aluminum processing Co., Ltd. is an aluminum processing enterprise inspected by General Secretary Xi Jinping twice. It is not only the glory of Yuefeng Aluminum processing Co., Ltd., but also the glory of aluminum industry.
The project under construction is being rebuilt.
Strive for early completion and commissioning.
