Alba appoints line 6 project director

Ex-employee returns to oversee project to boost capacity

NEWS, Projects

Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) has announced the appointment of a new director responsible for developing a project to develop a sixth production line.

Shawqi Mohd Al Hashimi will oversee the project and lead a team responsible for its implementation. He will report directly to the company's CEO, Tim Murray.

Al Hashimi has been involved with several similar previous projects, including the expansion of Line 5 for Alba and for projects for Ma'aden and Sohar Aluminium. He started his career as an electrical technician with Alba in 1982.

“We are pleased to welcome Shawqi back to Alba as he begins his new assignment as project director for Line 6," said CEO Tim Murray.

In December, the company appointed engineering firm Bechtel to complete a study and an economic analysis for the project, which involves building a new production line and a fifth power station at the facility, which is one of the largest aluminium smelters in the world.

The sixth line could add a further 400,000 tonnes of aluminium per year capacity to a plant that currently produces 880,000 tonnes a year.
