Aluminium Bahrain CEO optimistic about expansion approvals in 2015
The CEO of Bahraini aluminum smelter, Aluminium Bahrian, is optimistic that they will get approval for expansion this year.
The chief executive of Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), owner of one of the world’s largest aluminum smelters, said on Tuesday he was optimistic the company would receive the needed approvals for its $2.5 billion Line 6 expansion project this year.
“I am optimistic that we will get approvals in 2015,” CEO Tim Murray told an industry conference in Dubai.
“We are pushing as a management very hard for this move forward,” he said.
The plan will make Alba the largest single-site aluminum smelter in the world by boosting per-annum production by 400,000 metric tons at a time when demand for the metal is growing.
