The millionth tonne of bauxite was loaded aboard the bulk carrier ISA OLDENDORFF as part of a 60,000 tonne shipment bound for Metro’s foundation customer Xinfa Group. Xinfa is one of China’s largest integrated aluminium companies with significant refining and smelting operations. Metro has a 4-year binding off-take agreement to supply Xinfa with one million tonnes this year followed by 2Mtpa for each of the next 3 years.
