DUBAL (also known as EGA Jebel Ali Operations) DX+ Technology was selected for the construction of EMAL (also known as EGA Al Taweelah Operations) Potline 3, which operates 444 DX+ cells, successfully started in 9 months from September 2013. Amperage was increased from 440 kA to 444 kA during the start-up and reached 450 kA two months after completion of start-up. As required in the Technology Licence Agreement, a Performance Test of the DX+ Technology was carried out by DUBAL Technology team on a group of 30 adjacent cells over a period of 28 days in November 2014. The key performance indicators achieved by the test cells and by the rest of the potline exceeded the guaranteed performance criteria. In this paper, detailed analysis of the results of DX+ cell operation at 450 kA and a description of the Technology Performance Test is given.
