Alba is set to become the largest single-site aluminium smelter in the world upon completion of Line 6.

The expansion project will add 540,000 tonnes to Alba’s annual capacity, taking its total production capacity to 1.5 million tonnes per year.

In October, Mahmood Alkooheji, chief executive officer of Bahrain’s sovereign wealth fund, Mumtalakat, told Construction Week that he expects Line 6 to add approximately 500 permanent, direct jobs, with around 2,000 and 3,000 people working on the project during its construction. 

"As we congratulate ourselves on this sound Safety performance, we must remain focussed on maintaining the same momentum as we progress with Line 6 Expansion Project construction in 2018," Murray added.
