Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), in line with its commitment to improve operational efficiency and productivity for value-creation and sustainable operations, has kick-started a series of awareness sessions for its employees.
The sessions titled ‘Titan – Phase III: The Phase of Urgency & Extreme Ownership’ Campaign kicked off on October 8, and will run for one month, said a statement from Alba.
The awareness sessions are being held for employees of all levels across the plant by members of Alba’s operational excellence department and feature Q&A sessions and open discussions on various subjects in order to streamline the company’s cost structure, it said.
Alba’s chief executive officer Tim Murray said: “The aluminium industry today continues to face many headwinds, in particular the impact of higher Alumina prices coupled with fluctuating LME prices.”
“Through Project Titan – Phase III, we seek to adopt extreme measures to improve our operational efficiency all the while being prepared to seize the right opportunities in the future,” he said.
Alba had launched the Phase III of its company-wide, cost reduction programme Project Titan with the aim to reduce cash-cost by $60 per metric tonne of aluminium and step-up its production capacity to 1,000,000 metric tonnes per annum by end of 2018, it added.
