Tim Murray, the chief executive of Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) has said the company’s proposed $2.5bn expansion to add a sixth production line is likely to start by the end of this year, Gulf Daily News has reported. The bankable feasibility study is almost complete and the project is now subject to approvals from the board and authorities, Murray told the daily. Once the sixth potline goes on-stream, Alba expects to produce an additional 400,000 tonnes of aluminium a year, boosting current production capacity by 45% to around 1.3 million tonnes, he said. The project would take 36 months for completion from the commencement date.
