Sohar Aluminium Resumes Full Production in Record Time
Sohar Aluminium successfully resumed full operations in record time after an unexpected disruption in its normal operations, which led to the complete shutdown of its Potline on August 4th, 2017. The entire plant was involved in the recovery efforts to ensure the fastest return to full production, while sustaining excellent safety standards. The recovery process was recognized as an important accomplishment within the Aluminium industry.
Sohar Aluminium pays tribute for this great success to all its employees and contractors for their resilience, determination, and their “all-inclusive teamwork”. The Company takes pride in its entire team that demonstrated excellence and efficiency of its operations, and thanks its Shareholders, Oman Oil, TAQA and Rio Tinto and all Stakeholders for their trust and unlimited support.
