Indonesian NPI Output in 2017 to Miss Forecast, SMM Reports

Shanghai, Aug. 25 (SMM) – NPI output in Indonesia is expected to fall below market expectation in 2017, SMM foresees, due mainly to lower-than-expected output at Delong’s project in Indonesia. 

China Stainless Steel Mills Increase Using of Primary Nickel, SMM Learns

According to SMM sources, Delong Nickel Industry has put online two 33,000-KVA furnaces, but another 4 furnaces, which scheduled to come online in Q3 2017, will be delayed for friction with local government. Meanwhile, the friction also disturbed normal operations at the already-commissioned 2 furnaces. 

Indonesia Issues New Nickel Ore Export Quota

The company originally planned to ship all high-grade NPI produced at the 2 furnaces, which started production this April, back to China for its own production needs, but so far, no goods have been shipped back. All these give no optimistic reason for NPI output outlook in Indonesia. 

SMM expects NPI output in Indonesia to reach at around 159,800 tonnes in 2017.
