Alba's partnership with downstream units to grow

MANAMA, September 26, 2017

Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), the first aluminium smelter in the Gulf, shares a long lasting partnership with Bahrain’s downstream sector, and this partnership will grow even further with the launch of Alba’s pot line 6, Bahrain’s Industry, Commerce and Tourism Minister Zayed bin Rashed Al Zayani has said.

In his welcome address at the 32nd International Aluminium Conference being held in Bahrain, he said: “Bahrain has one of the most transparent, progressive and open economies in the GCC. We are extremely proud of our thriving aluminium industry, which is a significant contributor to Bahrain’s GDP.”

Alba is hosting the International Aluminium Conference from September 25 to 27 at the Gulf Hotel Bahrain under the patronage minister Al Zayani.

In his opening remark, Alba Chairman Shaikh Daij bin Salman bin Daij Al Khalifa said: “Alba is the cornerstone of Bahrain’s economy. It has constantly evolved and set an example for many through its strong objectives and organic growth. We look forward to the future with the same determination as we build and progress the much-awaited Line 6 Expansion Project.”
The conference featured many keynote speakers, including Alba’s Chief Executive Officer Tim Murray, who spoke on ‘Alba’s Success Story in Recovering Line 5 Safely and Efficiently’. He took also part in the executive panel session titled “Global Challenges and their Impact”.

In his keynote speech, Murray stated: “We are pleased to share the lessons learned during the power outage incident earlier this year. Thanks to our team’s ability to recover fast, we were able to turn this challenging time into a success story and leverage our resilience to set a new industry benchmark.”
