INALUM has an ambition to increase its primary aluminium production capacity to be 300,000 T/year in 2020 year. To achieve such target, several production facility improvement programs have been established. Some of them are under execution while the other are under preparation. One of the programs is a pot technology upgrade at 1 potline. The Upgrading Pot Technology project is divided into 2 phases. The first phase is called the pilot project and the second phase is expansion to 1 potline (170 pots). In pilot project phase, INALUM has appointed 2 providers to implement their technologies at 8 pots to demonstrate their best capability and performance to fulfil INALUM requirement. Some considerations regarding the selection are construction schedule and execution, commissioning phase, pot operation performance, and financial aspect. The above aspects have been challenged in terms of concept during bid process and actual condition after pilot project ends.
