Closure will be subject to progress with the prebake line. In 2006, Alcan indicated that first metal from the conversion/expansion would be poured in 2009, with the final metal on-line the end of 2011. This has been pushed back several times. In December 2013, the company indicated that it expected first metal from the prebake lines by the end of 2014.
