La Farga Group sets up a new company to produce Electrolytic Copper Rods

La Farga Rod, which will start business next year, is expected to have a turnover of €350 million in its first financial year. La Farga Group is a family-owned holding company that will celebrate its 200th anniversary next year. This coming January it will start producing electrolytic copper rods with an installed capacity of 180,000 tonnes per year, through the new company La Farga Rod. This will join the other group companies: La Farga Lacambra, which manufactures and markets semi-finished copper products from recycled materials, and La Farga Tub, which produces and markets copper piping. In the words of the group’s CEO, Oriol Guixà “This heavy industrial investment by our group consolidates the company’s position through diversification and adds new value to the copper sector”


The holding company has invested €12 million to get the new company up and running. This money has been invested in a new 21,462 m² plant (2,564 m² gross floor area) built alongside the group’s other plants in Les Masíes de Voltregà (Barcelona) and in machinery supplied by the Italian company Continuus Properzi using the latest technology. It will have the capacity to produce 25 tonnes of copper rods per hour. The new company will sell its products in the Spanish market, the south of Europe and North Africa, will create 25 new jobs and is expected to end its first financial year with turnover of €350 million, rising to €500 million in 2009.


La Farga Rod has been set up in response to the opportunity to take advantage of the synergies with other group companies and target new market segments by producing electrolytic copper rods. The company will use copper cathode from mines such as Chuquicamata in Chile, Las Cruces in Spain and Grasberg in Indonesia, and a foundry in Huelva, among others. This type of copper rod has different features to the secondary copper produced by recycling, which allows the company to serve markets such as enamelled wire, thin wire and extra-thin wire, which require a more purified kind of copper.


In addition to the capital invested in the new company, in 2007, La Farga Group invested a further €10 million in the companies it controls. It invested €7 million in La Farga Tub for new machinery that makes it more competitive, improves quality and diversifies the type of products made, plus a new plant with greatly improved material delivery, packaging and dispatch. The remaining €3 million was invested in the environment and to expand production capacity and innovation in the development of new materials used in the high-speed railway industry by La Farga Lacambra. “Our group, which is now 200 years old, is consolidating its leading position in the sector of semi-finished copper goods, in continuous rod casting, and in drawing and cord at European level,” said Oriol Guixà.


The group’s facilities will cover a surface area of 124,000 m², with 275 direct employees. It is expected to end this financial year with overall turnover of €500 million, €400 million from La Farga Lacambra and €100 million from La Farga Tub. The company forecasts a rise in its turnover in 2008 to €850 million, once the third company in the group has completed its first year of operation.

Fujitsu bags FLAG´s $1.5 billion cable project

Today in our manufacturing news we feature a press release from the Japanese cable giant, Fujitsu, who have been awarded a huge subsea cable project award.  For full press details please read on:

Fujitsu bags FLAG´s $1.5 billion cable project


Flag Telecom, the undersea cable arm of Reliance Communications (RCOM), has awarded Japan’s Fujitsu a $1.5-billion turnkey contract for construction of a next generation network (NGN) submarine cable. Others in the race for the mega contract were US-based Tyco Telecommunications, equipment vendor Alcatel and Japan-based NEC Corp, sources told ET.


NGN implies a consolidation of several transport networks, each built for a different service, into one core transport network based on internet protocol. It is one network that transports all information and services like voice, data and video by encapsulating these into packets like it is on the internet.


The NGN cable will involve construction of four new cable systems across the Mediterranean, East Africa, Asia and Pacific region. Upon completion, it will nearly double the length of existing FLAG global network from 65,000 km to 115,000 km and will expand the reach to connect 60 countries.


The project to build what is touted as the world’s largest IP network over submarine cable systems is expected to be completed by 2009-10. It will create capacity to carry 2.5 billion simultaneous voice calls, 300 million simultaneous web chats and 52 million simultaneous video chats.


FLAG NGN is expected to deliver the platform to meet the datacom requirements of over 200 international telecom, content and internet service provider customers of FLAG, 1,000 enterprise customers of recently-acquired Yipes and 850 out of 1,000 corporates in India through Reliance Communications.


It will also accelerate RCOM’s entry into the $90 billion global market for enterprise and institutional data services, an aim with which it also acquired Yipes last month.


The acquisition of US-based Yipes, a provider of managed Ethernet and application delivery, was a step in RCOM’s plan to move up the value chain and closer to its customers in the global data business. Yipes will operate as a strategic business unit, fully integrated strategically and operationally within FLAG Telecom.

GE News – GE Unit’s first investment in NY Wind Energy

Today in manufacturing news we feature an interesting press release from GE.  This time its from Energy section which will help boost wind energy capacity in teh New York state.  

GE Unit’s first investment in NY Wind Energy


GE Energy Financial Services, a unit of GE (NYSE: GE), will help boost wind energy capacity in New York State by more than 70 percent with an investment in three Noble Environmental Power windparks that will generate 282 megawatts in Clinton and Wyoming Counties. The GE unit’s first investment in wind energy in New York State will increase the state’s wind energy capacity to 671 megawatts. The projects, located in the towns of Clinton and Ellenburg in Clinton County, and Bliss in Wyoming County, New York, represent a $564 million investment in clean, renewable energy that will bring an estimated $352 million in new revenue to the regional economies over the next 20 years.


GE Energy Financial Services will invest the Class A equity as the non-managing member and Noble Environmental Power, based in Essex, Connecticut will invest the Class B equity as the managing member of the three windparks. In addition to remaining a significant equity investor, Noble will construct, operate and manage the facilities. Delivering power to the NYISO-controlled wholesale power grid, Noble’s windparks in northern and western New York State are expected to begin commercial operation during the fourth quarter of this year. Financial details of the transaction, which is subject to federal and state regulatory approvals, were not disclosed.


The 100.5-megawatt Noble Clinton Windpark, employing 67 GE 1.5-megawatt SLE wind turbines, is located three miles south of the US-Canadian border and 15 miles northwest of Plattsburgh, NY, in the town of Clinton in Clinton County. Also located in Clinton County, the 81-megawatt Noble Ellenburg Windpark uses 54 GE 1.5-megawatt SLE turbines. The 100.5-megawatt Noble Bliss Windpark, which uses 67 GE 1.5-megawatt SLE turbines, is located 30 miles southeast of Buffalo in the town of Eagle in Wyoming County.


“This transaction represents a significant geographic expansion of our wind energy footprint and helps us to reach our goal of investing $4 billion globally in renewable energy by 2010,” said Kevin Walsh, Managing Director and leader of renewable energy at GE Energy Financial Services. “We will continue to invest in high-quality wind projects in new markets that take advantage of strong partnerships with wind energy leaders such as Noble Environmental Power, reinforcing our commitment to ecomagination.” Ecomagination is GE’s initiative to help its customers meet their environmental challenges while expanding its own portfolio of cleaner energy products.


A total of 95 percent of the Renewable Energy Certificates generated by the three projects will be sold under 10-year contracts to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). NYSERDA, a state government agency, purchases the certificates to meet New York’s Renewable Portfolio Standard, which requires that 25 percent of New York’s power come from renewable sources by 2013.


The three windparks will annually produce electricity sufficient to power more than 93,000 average U.S. homes and will avoid nearly 590,000 tons per year in greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel generation.


Charles Hinckley, CEO of Noble Environmental Power, said: “Noble applauds and appreciates GE’s strong commitment to wind energy and considers it a valuable partner. The Noble Clinton, Ellenburg, and Bliss Windparks will make significant environmental and economic contributions: generating clean energy, creating jobs, and providing tax payments to the schools, towns, and counties. These benefits will reach far beyond the communities that host our windparks – creating a cleaner, healthier environment for the State of New York and saving New York ratepayers millions of dollars in electricity costs.”


With this transaction, GE Energy Financial Services has invested or committed to invest equity in 30 windparks and increased the total capacity of its global wind equity holdings to more than 2,000 megawatts.
