Ali Al Baqali, deputy CEO of Alba, received the award on Alba’s behalf, which was presented by the minister of oil Shaikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa. The award recognises the company’s efforts to improve the safety and health of its employees and contractors alike as well as promote environmental initiatives.

Alba is one of the largest and modern aluminium smelters in the world. Established in 1971 as a 120,000 tonnes per annum smelter, Alba produces more than 971,000MT per annum of the highest grade aluminium, with products including standard and T-ingots, extrusion billets, rolling slab, properzi ingots and molten aluminium.

This recognition aims to encourage the company to boost its efforts and push the envelope as it heads towards the completion of the flagship project – Line 6 Expansion Project.

Alba’s Line 6 Expansion Project is one of the largest brownfield developments in the region. Expected to begin production by January 2019, this project is seen to boost the smelter’s per-annum production by 540,000MT, bringing its total production capacity to 1.5mmt.

Organised by the Euro Petroleum Consultants (EPC) and held under the patronage of Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, the Forum included distinguished international experts and renowned speakers in the field of safety, health and environment.
