Alusaf Hillside Aluminium Smelter, Richards Bay

The paper describes the design and construction of an aluminium smelter at Richards Bay, South Africa, for Alusaf; which was justified on the basis of unique cooperation agreements regarding the major inputs to the process. Upon completion the smelter is one of the world’s largest, and is probably the largest constructed in one building phase. It describes the history of the project from feasibility studies in 1991 to completion in 1995. R.F. Ford and C. Lilley
