Bahrain’s Sustainable Energy Authority (SEA) and Bahrain Bourse-listed aluminium smelter Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) tap areas of collaboration to improve efficient energy consumption within Alba facilities in the kingdom.

The move comes in line with a recent meeting, where the president of SEA, Dr. Abdulhussain bin Ali Mirza, received a delegation from Alba comprising acting chief executive officer, Ali Al-Baqali; chief power officer, Amin Sultan; and director of safety, health, and environment, Mohamed Khalil, Bahrain's state-held news agency, BNA reported. 

During the meeting Mirza lauded the Alba team on the operational start of its Line 6 Expansion Project, which was inaugurated in November 2019 by Bahrain’s King HM King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa. He added that the project reflected the kingdom’s economic progress.

Meanwhile, as part of the meeting Al-Baqali praised Mirza’s efforts towards the industrial and sustainable energy sectors in the kingdom.

Alba’s Line 6 Expansion Project is one of the biggest brownfield developments in Bahrain. The project has achieved savings of more than $370m (BHD139.5m) in the execution of Reduction Line 6 – corresponding to 16% savings of its allotted budget.
