Maaden set to start production at $10.8bn aluminium smelter

Saudi Arabian Mining Co (Maaden) has said initial production at its $10.8bn aluminium smelter is set to start next month, Reuters has reported. Maaden and Alcoa teamed up in 2009 to build the aluminium complex at Ras al-Khair on the Gulf coast. The smelter will have a capacity of 740,000 tonnes per year and production will be ramped up gradually to that level, Maaden said.
