Ruukki to focus on wind energy in Norway

Ruukki Engineering will reorganise its operations at its Mo i Rana plant in Norway to reflect the weak demand in the shipbuilding industry. The plant’s main products are shipbuilding profiles although flange profiles for windmill towers have been the fastest growing product sector in recent years. Mill operations will change over to working one shift instead of two. Adjustment to production will result in the reduction of 137 jobs at the plant. These reductions will take place during the autumn. The Mo i Rana plant will focus on the production of flange profiles for windmill towers since the wind power sector continues to grow.
