A new Al plant

By Chemical Engineering |

Qatar Petroleum (Doha; edlinks.chemengonline.com/5829-542) and Norsk Hydro A/S (Oslo, Norway; edlinks.chemengonline.com/5829-543) have formed a joint venture company, Qatalum, to build and operate what is claimed as the largest, initial-phase greenfield aluminum smelter ever constructed. The smelter will have an annual capacity of 585,000 m.t. of primary aluminum, and a dedicated gas-fired power plant will have a planned installed capacity of 1,350 MW. Construction on the project — to be located in the Mesaieed Industrial City, south of Doha — is expected to begin mid 2007, with first metal to be poured by the end of 2009.
