“Aluminium is the metal of the future, and we are here to continue making it available through our soon-to-be investment in Line 7. Moving ahead with our organic growth strategy, the Proposed Line 7 will add more “environmentally friendly” production capacity to Alba’s nameplate capacity of 1.561 million metric tonnes.
With the continuous support of the Kingdom’s leadership and the vision of HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa the Crown Prince and Prime Minister and with the successful conclusion of the Pre-Feasibility Study, we are keen to capitalise on our experience from the Line 6 Expansion Project to make the future Line 7 another success story for Bahrain and Alba.”
