Schoeck ME FZE will be supplying its ComBAR fibreglass-reinforcement bars to the Ras Az Zawr aluminium smelter project in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The first production from the $4bn aluminium smelter and rolling mill is expected in 2013.

The company will be supplying a selection of rebars for the project, including straight and bent rebars, as well as spacers.

“Schoeck’s rebar was specified to be installed in the slabs and foundations for the rectifiers as ComBAR components are fully non-magnetic and electrically non-conductive, and therefore do not disturb the function of the rectifiers, nor does it pose any potential dangerous effects in the future,” commented Christoph Spitz, MD of Schoeck ME FZE in Dubai.

Work on Saudi Arabia's first-ever aluminium smelter at the Ma’aden minerals industry complex at the Ras Az Zawr Minerals Industrial City commenced in 2010.
