Ferroglobe PLC, a leading producer of silicon metal, silicon-based alloys and manganese-based alloys, announced that the Company has taken incremental actions to counter the impact of rising energy prices in Spain.

The Company has decided to idle one furnace at the Sabon facility, a second furnace at the Boo facility, and aims to reduce target production by 25% at the Monzón facility by modulating production in line with volatility in the energy price.

Collectively, these actions are aimed at minimizing the impact of rising energy costs in Spain, while enabling us to satisfy our existing obligations to customers.

Mr. Marco Levi, Ferroglobe’s Chief Executive Officer stated, “During this unprecedented time where energy prices in Spain have more than quadrupled over the past few months, we are constantly seeking ways to minimize the impact. The ability to leverage our broad asset footprint and technical expertise proves to be valuable in countering this problem.” Mr. Levi continued, “This latest set of actions enables us to fulfil our customer obligations in Spain, in part by utilizing other assets in the region, with the goal of optimizing each order. We continue to monitor this unique situation on a daily basis and will make operational adjustments accordingly.”
