Emal begins work on phase 2 development
Emirates Aluminium, a leading single site aluminium smelter complex, recently held a symbolic ground breaking of its Phase II development in the USD 4.5 billion expansion.
The ceremony marked the start of construction of the Al Taweelah smelter’s Phase II with completion and full production planned to be reached in little more than two years. This will boost Emal’s total production capacity to around 1.3 million tonnes by the end of 2014.
Phase I was completed ahead of time and to budget, and has been making its mark as both a cornerstone project of the UAE’s 2030 Vision and a major new force in the global aluminium market supplying 280 customers in 36 countries with high quality aluminium. Emal Phase II will include the addition of a new potline and will result in the world’s longest ever single smelting line.
