Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba), the Bahrain-based international aluminium smelter, announced that the First Concrete in Potline 6 Foundation was successfully achieved in May 2017 with the commencement of early works in the construction site.

The Potline 6 has two pot rooms, E&F, wherein each pot room is approximately 1.4 km in length and are considered the longest buildings on the Line 6 Expansion Project plot.

Commenting on this achievement, Alba’s Chairman of Board of Directors Shaikh Daij Bin Salman Bin Daij Al Khalifa said:

“We are very pleased with the fast-track approach adopted by our team towards our landmark project. We also remain optimistic that by reducing the lead time activities, we will be able to get Line 6 Expansion Project off to a successful start as per schedule and have the First Hot Metal by January 2019.”

Upon completion in December 2018, the concrete foundations for Potline 6 will be approximately 85,000 m3.
