SHANGHAI, Nov 27 (SMM) – Shandong Weiqiao Aluminium and Electricity, a subsidiary of China Hongqiao Group, will move 2.03 million mt of capacity in Binzhou of east China’s Shandong province to south China’s Yunnan, according to a notice on the capacity swap by Shandong’s department of industry and information technology on Thursday.

Shandong Weiqiao has about 6.46 million mt of capacity, with around 5.8 million mt in operation.
