Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba) - the world’s largest aluminium smelter ex-China - closes 2020 by beating its Production Target of 1,540,000 metric tonnes per annum (mtpa) to top a breakthrough record of 1,548,500 metric tonnes, the highest-ever achieved in 50-years of commercial operations [up by 13% Year-over-Year versus 1,365,005 mtpa in 2019].
Commenting on this production-record, Alba’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Baqali said:
“2020 was a year like no other with world-shifting challenges. But for Alba and despite all odds, we have raised the bar and finished 2020 strong by achieving the highest-ever record in our operational performance. This achievement was only made possible thanks to our dedicated workforce, employees and contractors’ employees who rose to such challenges while remaining fully committed to our motto of ‘Safety First, Safety Always’.”
The celebratory ceremony was held today while adhering to social distancing norms and was attended by the Executive Management team along with many employees from across the plant.
