European Investment Bank and Elval, the aluminium rolling division of ElvalHalcor, announce new EUR 75 million financing agreement to enable sustainable progress

  • Elval is the second largest European aluminium producer in terms of hot rolling capacity
  • Aluminium enables sustainable progress, fueled by global mega trends
  • European Investment Bank (EIB) will support the investment program in the form of EUR 75 million loan over 10 years 
The European Investment Bank has agreed to provide a EUR 75 million 10-year loan to Elval, ElvalHalcor’s Aluminium Rolling Division, financing 50% of its new investment.
The first phase of ElvalHalcor’s five-year investment program to gradually increase overall production capacity of flat rolled aluminium to more than 500,000 tn/yr was completed in 2020, with the installation of a four stand Tandem hot-rolling finishing m in the Elval plant in Oinofyta Greece. 
The new investment concerns the implementation of the second phase of the investment program with an additional EUR 150 million in order to achieve increased production capacity targets responding to a growing market demand for rigid packaging and other aluminium products, driven by global mega trends.
This investment, consisting of a new cold rolling mill, a new lacquering line and their associated equipment, as well as a new melting furnace and debottlenecking of slab processing, will have a significant input in overall footprint reductions. Efficiency of new machines and equipment will aid the plant’s energy intensity reduction targets and decrease return rates, thus lowering environmental and carbon footprint. Fully aligned with Industry 4.0 principles it is expected to create a total of 114 new jobs.
The cooperation between EIB and Elval, the aluminium rolling division of ElvalHalcor, was announced in Athens on Wednesday April 13, during a Signing Ceremony of the Loan Agreement by Werner Hoyer, EIB President and Michael Stassinopoulos, Chairman of ElvalHalcor’s BoD. 
“Increased productivity, innovation and extroversion are Elval’s strategic growth pillars. The EIB loan enables the technologically pioneering investment plan of ElvalHalcor’s Aluminium Rolling Division, enhances the presence of Greek manufacturing at the forefront of global mega-trends, contributing to circular and digital economy, energy transition and climate neutrality targets. I would like to personally thank ΕΙΒ and its President Werner Hoyer for their presence here today and for their continuous support of our efforts,” stated Michael Stassinopoulos, ElvalHalcor’s BoD Chairman.
“The European Investment Bank is pleased to provide EUR 75 million new financing to accelerate investment in innovation, energy efficiency and recycling by ElvalHalcor. This visionary investment will strengthen sustainable production at one of Europe’s leading aluminum companies as part of our broader support for transformational private sector investment across a range of industries,” stated EIB President Werner Hoyer.
