Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), soon to be the largest aluminium smelter in the world, said its flagship Line 6 Expansion Project was progressing as per schedule with the successful testing of 40 pots which are now fully operational. 
 
One of the most remarkable achievements for Alba on this landmark project is the Extreme Ownership on Safety by Alba employees and contractors, it stated. 
 
Line 6 Smelter clocked more than 32 million working-hours without Lost Time Injury (LTI), while Power Station 5 recorded more than 7 million working-hours without LTI and Power Distribution System achieved more than 2 million working-hours without LTI as of January 31, 2019, it added.
 
Alba Chairman Shaikh Daij Bin Salman Bin Daij Al Khalifa said: "We are delighted to have begun work on Potline 6 ahead of schedule on December 13, 2018 and to have successfully started the first 40 pots."
 
"Alba is targeting Line 6 full ramp-up within Q3 2019 which will further position us to take advantage of the growing demand in global aluminium consumption," he noted. 
 
"We also look forward to finish 2019 strong as Alba’s total production will top 1,350,000 metric tonnes with Potline 6. With 2019 production target, we will make a big step forward on the cost side which will bring us closer to achieve $40 million savings (Phase IV of Project Titan) in 2019," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
