Project Outline
Almahdi is one of the largest and most modern aluminum smelting plants in the Middle East. The Plant's first phase became operational in mid-1997 with a production capacity of 110,000 tonnes of pure aluminum ingot per year, meeting nearly 80% of Iran's current needs. As the second and third phases of the project come online within the next few years, annual output will reach 220 and 330 thousand tonnes respectively, thus making Iran not only totally self-sufficient in its domestic requirements well into the new century, but also providing a surplus enough to supply the nation's export markets in the foreseeable future.
