Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba), the Bahrain-based aluminium smelter, is pleased to announce that the optimization process of Line 6 Expansion Project has been concluded with the completion of the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) study in the first quarter of 2017.

Speaking on this milestone, Alba’s Chairman of Board of Directors Shaikh Daij Bin Salman Bin Daij Al Khalifa said:
“Line 6 Expansion Project is no longer a blue-print, but a reality.
We are very pleased with advancing Line 6 Expansion Project and expediting the construction phase to be on schedule.”
With the completion of the FEED study, many value-added initiatives were identified which in turn will optimize the safe delivery of Line 6 Expansion Project on schedule and within the budget.
