Garmco’s new slab casting facility now operating at full production

After two years of engineering, sourcing, construction and commissioning activities, the Garmco casthouse is now producing aluminium slabs from clean and post-consumer aluminium. EPC contractor for the new 120,000 tpy slab casting facility in Bahrain was technology partner Fives.

New slab casting facility at Garmco

The first slab was cast on 3 August 2017. Five months later, in mid-December 2017, performance tests were successfully completed, and the plant is now fully operational. The successful start-up of this project is the result of efforts driven by Fives and Garmco’s project and operation teams, as well as carefully selected equipment suppliers and local sub-contractors.
