In Sweden, aluminium was produced at the sole Sundsvall smelter from 1942. The company benefited from Sweden's plentiful supply of hydro and nuclear power. However, the decision taken in 1997 by the government to decommission two of the country's 14 nuclear power plants raised some concerns in the company that power costs may be raised and indeed the smelter was forced to close in the late 1990s. 35 ALUMINIUM EU electricity deregulation The march towards liberalisation of Europe's electricity markets became seemingly unstoppable in the second half of the 1990s with the adoption in late 1996 of common rules for the opening of the European Union's electricity markets.

9bn within two to three years. The advantages are that emissions could be reduced and energy efficiencies improved, although by 15-20% compared with the estimated 20-30% for the more radical pre-bake conversion option. 8 bn over three to four years. The main advantage of this approach would be that metal production could be increased by some 20-30% for the same power consumption, hazardous emissions could be reduced and the work could take place without halting production. However, the installation of new potlines at the Sayansk smelter is an example of how renovation can uplift a smelter's operations.

The basis for the proposed arrangement was that the government would ensure that the national power company built new hydro and geothermal electricity generating capacity, while the consortium would build the smelter. The original participants were Alusuisse, Austria Metall (AMAG), Hoogovens (now Corus) and Granges. But in 1989, the consortium started to unravel with the withdrawal of AMAG and Alusuisse.
