Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), the world’s largest smelter ex-China, has set an all-time record-breaking production of 1,561,222 metric tonnes in 2021 a fitting tribute on its golden jubilee of operations.

In addition, Alba achieved a noutstanding safety milestone by closing 2021 with more than 20 million safe-working hours without LTI – a first in the company’s 50 years of commercial operations.

Commenting on these achievements, CEO Ali Al Baqali said: 'Despite all odds, we closed 2021 with an exceptional performance by hitting new highs in our production - 1,561,222 metric tonnes and besting 2020 production record of 1,548, 500 metric tonnes.'

'What makes this milestone even more important for us is that we have nailed it without any single Lost Time Injury (LTI),' he stated.

Safety of its employees and contractors’ workforce remains Alba’s top priority.
