    Abdulla Kalban, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of EGA, said: “Alumina refining will be a new industrial activity for the UAE, so this shipment of bauxite is the first ever to our country. Thousands of people are currently working hard to bring the construction of Al Taweelah alumina refinery to completion, and we look forward to producing our first alumina during the first half of next year.”

    More than 13,000 people are currently constructing Al Taweelah alumina refinery, which is one of the largest industrial construction sites in the UAE. Al Taweelah alumina refinery, with a total budgeted project cost of approximately $3.3 billion, is expected to produce some two million tonnes of alumina per year.

    “Sections of Al Taweelah alumina refinery are being completed in sequence to enable the carefully-planned pre-commissioning and commissioning of the thousands of pieces of equipment that make up the huge plant,” it said in a statement.

    EGA said it is also building a bauxite mine and associated export facilities. First bauxite from Guinea Alumina Corporation project is expected during the second half of 2019.
