Alvance Aluminium says it is aware of the ongoing investigation by Environmental Health into the loading of spent carbon anodes onto one ship at Corpach harbour a few months ago.
The news comes almost four years to the day that GFG announced it had bought the smelter and accompanying hydro-electric scheme plus another hydro plant at Kinlochleven, together with 114,000 acres of estate lands, in a £330M deal from Rio Tinto Aluminium.
After news broke of the new plans for the smelter site, a number of local Corpach residents took to social media this week to voice their fears about any expansion of the port at Corpach as a result of the scheme.
In a new venture for the group, GFG Alliance is also tabling plans for a new water canning facility, located next to the Fort William plant, to package Scottish Highlands water into reusable aluminium cans.
GFG Alliance has given a categorical assurance there will be no negative impact on local jobs at the Lochaber smelter in Fort William as a result of the company’s consolidation of all its aluminium businesses into a single group to be headquartered in Paris.
