Alba ‘running at full capacity’

MANAMA: Alba, the world’s largest aluminium smelter ex-China, has been running its operations at full capacity despite Covid-19, said the company chairman, Shaikh Daij bin Salman Al Khalifa, during the second quarterly board meeting held virtually yesterday.

“As Covid-19 unfolds, we had to adapt quickly – finding our balance in the new normal. Our production facilities continue at full run rate while new safety measures were adapted across the plant to ensure that our workforce is safe at all times,” said Shaikh Daij.

“I also congratulate everyone, employees and contractors, on topping more than 22 million working hours without lost time injury (LTI) mark for the first time in our history and for keeping Alba safe as we deliver on our commitments to our customers.”

During the meeting, the board approved the minutes of the previous meeting and also reviewed reports of the executive, board audit and the nomination, remuneration and corporate governance committees. Updates were also given on safety and plant performance amidst Covid-19, insights on the overall market conditions and Alba’s financial performance to-date.
