- Fujitsu delivers new cloud-based infrastructure services to Hydro to achieve continuous improvement of services and enable business flexibility
Jo De Vliegher, Chief Information Officer, Hydro
Hydro is moving more towards the cloud because it provides the company with the flexibility we need as a global business. At the same time we need to strengthen specific services within particular business areas or locations. Hydro is thus seeing a clear need for a strong mix between cloud and on-premise, global and local In extending our long-standing partnership with Fujitsu to deliver ICT services, the company stands out among the competition as having an innovative and consistent approach, clear global strengths, and a very good understanding of our business and requirements.”

Notes to the Editor
1 The Aluminium Lifecycle
- Production steps
Aluminium production is a time-consuming and energy-intensive process. But once the aluminium is made, it can be recycled over and over without losing its superb qualities.
- Bauxite mining
About 7 percent of the earth’s crust is aluminium, making it the third-most abundant element after oxygen and silicon. Aluminium production starts with the raw material bauxite.
- Alumina refining
Aluminium oxide (alumina) is extracted from bauxite in a refinery. Alumina is then used to produce primary aluminium.
- Primary production
It is crucial to us to minimize the environmental impacts of aluminium production. At the same time, Hydro develops products that can reduce the environmental burden when they are in use.
Hydro is a leading supplier of extrusion ingot, sheet ingot, foundry alloys and high-purity aluminium with a global production network.
Recycling is very important to sustainable development. It allows resources to be saved and waste to be reduced.
