Abstract Scope DUBAL (also known as EGA Jebel Ali Operations) has gradually increased its aluminium production capacity from 135 000 tonnes in 1979 to over 1 million tonnes today, using six different cell technologies. The associated increase in anode requirements was largely supported by the installation of a second mixing line in 1996, with the balance being outsourced. In the last 10 years, DUBAL also increased its annual hot metal production by around 90 000 tonnes through amperage increase and capacity creep, further increasing the site’s anode requirements. Simultaneously, the DUBAL Paste Plant faced other challenges such as ageing equipment, larger anode dimensions and multiple anode sizes. To overcome these challenges, DUBAL Paste Plant embarked on a journey towards best-in-class operational effectiveness. This has resulted in a 10 % increase in throughput above the design capacity and an improvement in overall equipment effectiveness of more than 15 %, while continuously improving anode density.
