Sakura is a low-cost ferromanganese producer and has successfully commissioned two 81 MVA furnaces.

Both furnaces are flexible as they are designed to produce either high-carbon ferromanganese or silicomanganese.

Furnace 1 was successfully commissioned in April 2016, followed by Furnace 2 in September, with the first shipment of high-carbon ferromanganese having been exported in June 2016.

Assmang (which is jointly controlled by Assore and African Rainbow Minerals was quoted in Mining Weekly as saying, “Sakura (was built) in Malaysia largely owing to the availability of hydroelectric power. Many environmental considerations have been incorporated into this Greenfield project’s production process to reduce its impact on the surrounding areas.”
