About ALBA Line 6 Power Station 5:
ALBA Line 6 Power Station 5 will be the largest single site smelter upon project completion. The Line 6 Expansion Project, expected to begin production in early 2019, will boost the per-annum aluminium production by 514,000 metric tonnes upon full ramp-up. This would bring Alba’s total production capacity to approximately 1,450,000 metric tonnes per year. Due to increased power demands, the Line 6 Expansion Project will require the construction of a fifth power station (PS5) and Power Distribution System (PDS). The power station PS5 is intended to supply the new Line 6 expansion smelter loads at 220 kV and auxiliary loads at 11.5 kV.
