Progress of GARMCO's new aluminium recycling plant


Construction of GARMCO’s new Aluminium Recycling Plant continues to achieve significant milestones with erection of the building frame, installation of two 70 MT Melting Furnaces and commencement for the installation of a 105 MT Twin Chamber Furnace. The air pollution control equipment is currently being installed and the pit is being prepared to accept all of the casting equipment which will be installed during March 2017.

GARMCO chose world best equipment suppliers and designed the plant to meet stringent Bahraini safety and environmental regulations. The new plant will provide GARMCO with the capability to cast an additional 120,000 tonnes of 10 tonne Aluminium slab products. Once the slabs are rolled, the finished products will exceed customer’s quality requirements whilst improving operational safety and reducing production costs.

GARMCO congratulates Fives in achieving over 600,000 man hours without any lost time injuries. 2017 will be a challenging year for all personnel on this fast track project, with commissioning of equipment to start in April and the plant to be fully operational by November 2017.
