Alba’s Chairman of the Board Shaikh Daij bin Salman bin Daij Al Khalifa stated: This MoU cements our technology partnership with EGA, our partner of choice. We are pleased with the performance of EGA’s DX+ Ultra technology at Potline 6 and are keen to work with EGA to further improve our Potline performance. We are also excited to explore other opportunities to deploy EGA technological expertise at our smelter for the potential brownfield expansion of Potline 7, in another close cooperation between our two nations – the Kingdom of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.”

His Excellency Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of EGA, added: “This agreement is in line with the directives of the UAE’s wise leadership to further deepen the brotherly relations between our two countries. Aluminum Bahrain was EGA’s first technology customer, a landmark for the development of a knowledge-based economy in the UAE. EGA looks forward to continuing to apply its technology expertise on a commercial basis to support its production ambitions. EGA’s goal is to be the technology supplier of choice in the Aluminium industry, with technology as a growing revenue stream for EGA as well as delivering competitive advantage for the company’s own operations.”
