Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba) is currently expanding its primary aluminium production capacity with Line 6 Expansion Project. Upon the full ramp-up of Potline 6 in 2019, the Company’s smelter capacity will be increased by more than 50 percent to 1.5 million tons a year. This investment will make Alba one of the largest aluminium smelters in the world.
Impol d.o.o. based in Slovenska Bistrica in Slovenia has placed an order for a stationary melting furnace and charging equipment for a melting rate of six to eight tons an hour with Hertwich Engineering, a company of the SMS group. It will be part of a new casting plant for rolling ingots due to start operation in May 2018.
