EMIRATES ALUMINIUM (EMAL), a joint venture between Abu Dhabi's Mubadala Development Company and Dubai Aluminium (Dubal), has so far committed US$3.6 billion in investment by awarding 326 contracts for its smelter.
Emal is spending a total of US$5.7 billion in the first phase of its plant in Khalifa Port Industrial Zone in Taweelah, half way between Abu Dhabi and Dubai. To be developed in two phases of equal capacity, the smelter aims to become the world's single-largest aluminium production site. A feasibility study is being conducted to determine when work can start on the second phase of the smelter, Hedditch said.
