The Kurri Kurri Kookaburra Print Page
The Giant Kookaburra was a gift to the town of Kurri Kurri from Hydro Alumium to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the smelter.
The Kurri Kurri aluminium smelter produced 164,000 tonnes of aluminium in 2006 and is owned and operated by Hydro Aluminium - part of the Norsk Hydro group. The first potline of the Kurri Kurri smelter was started in 1969. The smelter was originally owned by Alcan and uses Alcan end-to-end prebake technology. The smelter now comprises three potlines of end-to-end cells.
