Project Team Explores Development of Aluminium Industry Cluster in Suhar

A project team tasked with developing an integrated economic cluster for aluminium in Suhar conducted a field visit to Suhar Industrial City to discuss the establishment of an aluminium industry cluster. The team, overseen by the Public Authority for Special Economic Zones and Free Zones (OPAZ), includes representatives from OPAZ, the Public Establishment for Industrial Estates “Madayn,” the National Programme for Economic Diversification “Tanwee,” the National Programme for Investment and Exports Development “Nazdaher,” and the Industrial Innovation Academy.

During the visit, the team met with the executive management of Sohar Aluminium, a key player in the Sultanate’s aluminium industry. They also toured several downstream factories involved in aluminium manufacturing to understand the challenges these factories face and to identify investment opportunities within the integrated economic cluster.

The aluminium industry is a vital component of the Sultanate’s industrial sector, playing a crucial role in supporting national economic diversification and generating new employment opportunities. The integrated economic cluster aims to strengthen the Sultanate’s position as a global hub for aluminium production by attracting new investments and developing advanced manufacturing industries.

This visit is expected to aid in formulating a comprehensive action plan for the development of the Aluminium Industry Complex in Suhar. icon
