    Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) Chairman Shaikh Daij Bin Salman Bin Daij Al Khalifa said the company’s Line 6 Expansion Project is a game-changer and marks a turning point for Alba and a new era of growth and prosperity for Bahrain.

    With the inauguration of the Project on Sunday 24 November 2019, Alba has become the largest aluminium smelter in ex-China world. The Line 6 Expansion Project was inaugurated by King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa, the King of the Kingdom of Bahrain.

    The company is now actively seeking to expand its products’ portfolio and increase sales with a major emphasis on the US market.

    “24 November 2019 is a historical day for Alba as we were honoured with the presence of His Majesty King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa, the King of the Kingdom of Bahrain, for gracing us with His Majesty’s presence to officially inaugurate Line 6 Expansion Project and accompanied by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, First Deputy Prime Minister and Deputy Supreme Commander”, Shaikh Daij Bin Salman Bin Daij Al Khalifa said in a statement issued during the fourth quarterly Board meeting for 2019, held on 01 December 2019.

    “In addition, we aim to have a strong finish in 2019 as our production will top 1.35 million metric tonne, for the first time in Alba’s history thanks to the safe and progressive ramp-up of Line 6, while at the same time, we intend to achieve 15 million working-hours without Lost Time Injury by year-end 2019.”
