Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), one of the world’s largest aluminium smelters, has set a new historic production record of 1,600,111 metric tonnes (MT) in 2022.

The figure is an increase of 38,889 MT versus 1,561,222 MT in 2021 (+2.5% year-on-year), as announced by the company today (January 3).

Commenting on this milestone, Alba’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Baqali stated:

“This all-time production record translates our motto ‘opportunities don’t happen, we create them by doing the best we can with what we have’. We also look forward to set new highs in the future driven by our in-house production creep.

"I take the opportunity to express my gratitude to the Management team, our employees and contractors’ personnel for making our 2022 objectives a reality by challenging themselves to do more safely and responsibly,” he said.

A special ceremony, attended by the executive management, directors, managers and employees from various departments, was held at Alba’s Product Yard to mark this achievement.
