Trimet Aluminium wharfage is an independent, medium-sized enterprise. The plant was founded in 1970 under the name Reynolds Aluminium, the electrolysis facilities were opened in 1974 and metal production began. In 1975 Reynolds threatened to give up in view of massive environmental problems and (on the grounds of surety) the city founded Hamburger Aluwerke – with a 20-year fixed electricity contract up until 1995. Then production continued until 2005 at considerably higher electricity prices, the rolling mill was given off to Hydro Aluminium, and by December 2005 all the furnaces were cold. After intense negotiations with the city, the aluminium smelter and the anode factory were sold to the family enterprise Trimet / Heinz-Peter Schlüter end 2006 and the first electrolytic furnace was running again in March 2007. Under full production, the plant produces an annual 130,000 tons of liquid aluminium.The expansive outdoor facilities, the production halls, the electrolytic furnaces, the conveyor belts and the wharfage with its suction devices all provide an abundance of interesting and spectacular motifs. Trimet is very open towards shooting requests and says of itself that it readily tries to make possible what it can.
