Anode Size Increase at Alba's
The first new anodes were produced on the two Alba’s Green Anode Plants in Bahrain between mid-October and mid-November 2016.
In June 2016, Alba awarded Fives Services Gulf SPC a contract for anode size enlargement at Green Anode Plants 2 and 3. This project is part of a global creeping project which aims at increasing production from 960,000 tons to more than 1 million tons of aluminium a year by the end of 2017 (without considering the future line 6 project).
Engineering was performed by Fives Solios in France while the project was managed by Fives Services Gulf (fabrication, follow-up, execution). Through this contract, Fives Services Gulf’s teams had the opportunity to demonstrate their capabilities to manage Service projects on a turnkey basis.
Moreover, this contract perfectly fits with the Fives’ Services development strategy, aiming at improving its Services subsidiary’s autonomy, both commercially and technically.
