Peikko delivers connection items to the world’s largest aluminium smelter plant in Bahrain

Peikko Group’s subsidiary in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Al Rashed Peikko LLC, has received a substantial order of connection items to an expansion of an aluminium smelter plant located in Bahrain. The order comprises more than 10 000 pieces of HPKM® Column Shoes and HPM® Rebar Anchor Bolts for the plant’s column connections. The deliveries are ongoing and they will continue until the end of 2017. The new pot line is estimated to begin production in early 2019.

The developer of the plant is Aluminium Bahrain (ALBA), and the main contractor is Nass Contracting. Bechtel Corporation is the project manager, and also responsible for the structural engineering of the project. The large precast elements for the project are produced by Nass Contracting at an on-site factory. All other precast elements are supplied by Delmon Precast. The current Line 6 Expansion Project will make Aluminium Bahrain the largest single site aluminium smelter in the world.

“This project is one of the biggest industrial projects in Bahrain with a strong interest from the Bahraini government. We are honored that Peikko was chosen as a supplier for this significant plant investment. Decisive for this project was the fast and safe on-site assembly of Peikko’s column connections, which accelerates the frame erection phase. Also our effective software tools for the design of column connections were appreciated”, states Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
