Finnish component supplier Componenta Corporation said on Wednesday (20 September) that a furnace accident had occurred late on Tuesday evening at the company's foundry in Karkkila, Finland.

Some 15 tonnes of molten iron spilled from the holding furnace into the cooling tank beneath the furnace, but no one was injured or hurt in the accident, the company said.

Production has restarted at the foundry, so the financial impact will be minor.
