Century Aluminum Company Permanently Closing Ravenswood, W.V. Aluminum Smelter

Century Aluminum Company announced that it intends to permanently close its Ravenswood, W.V. aluminum smelter, effective immediately. The Ravenswood smelter has been idled since February 2009. The decision to permanently close the Ravenswood plant is based on the inability to secure a competitive power contract for the smelter, compounded by challenging aluminum market conditions largely driven by increased exports of aluminum from China. As a result, the economics of restarting and operating the facility are unfavorable.
