Aluminium Bahrain’s (Alba) Chairman of Board of Directors, Shaikh Daij Bin Salman Bin Daij Al Khalifa, has paid a field visit to the company’s Reduction Line 6, which is about to celebrate 2 years after its official inauguration.

This tour comes in line with the Chairman’s planned visits to Alba’s campus following the ease of Covid-19 restrictions, a statement said.

Joined by Alba’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Baqali and the Executive Management, Shaikh Daij was given an up-close-and-personal tour of Reduction Line 6 and its facilities.

Shaikh Daij said: “A game changer, Line 6 has made Alba the world’s largest aluminium smelter ex-China. The organic growth which the company has embarked on with Line 6 in operations has seen Alba top new records in its financial performance and scale the ranks to join the $720 million club for the first time in its net profits for the nine-month period of 2021.

“I also take this opportunity to thank Line 6 team for an unparalleled performance and for maintaining Operational and Safety standards at all times.”

Inaugurated by His Majesty King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa the King of the Kingdom of Bahrain in the presence of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister, in November 2019, Line 6 added 540,000 metric tonnes to Alba’s former name-plate capacity bringing it to more than 1.548 million metric tonnes per year.
