King of Bahrain His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa has patronized the inauguration of the Alba Line 6 Expansion Project at the Aluminium Bahrain BSC. HM The King expressed delight at inaugurating the Alba Line 6 Expansion Project, which will further bolster the standing of the firm to become the largest smelter with a total production capacity exceeding one million tonnes per year. Reduction Line 6, one of the longest reduction lines in the world, that comprises 424 reduction cells built over an area of 1,400 metres, will add 540,000 tonnes per annum to the company’s total production capacity bringing it to more than 1.5 million tonnes, a remarkable growth from being a 120,000 tonnes aluminium smelter when it was commissioned back in 1971.

Line 6 Expansion Project has set benchmarks in sustainable aluminium production with both Reduction Line 6 and PS 5. Implementation of the proprietary Emirates Global Aluminium DX+ Ultra Technology in Reduction Line 6 enables Alba to increase its output with no increase in energy consumption, while adopting GE’s 9HA Gas Turbine technology in PS 5 has made it the most efficient Combined-Cycle power plant in the Gulf region.
