Kentech International Abu Dhabi, a branch of the Kentech Group, has been awarded two significant new contracts with TSJ, a joint venture between Italy's Tecnimont and Korea's Samsung Engineering, on the Borouge 3 Project at Ruwais in Abu Dhabi. The contracts cover the electrical and instrumentation installation works and HVAC installation works on the Polyolefins Plant (PO) and Low Density Polyethylene Plant (LDPE) currently being constructed as part of the Borouge 3 megaproject.
Borouge 3 is the expansion of the existing petrochemical plant at Ruwais and represents an overall investment of $4.5 billion by Borouge, a joint venture between the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), one of the world's major oil and gas companies, and Austria based Borealis, a leading provider of chemical and plastic solutions. The development includes an ethane cracker, two polyethylene units and two polypropylene units as well as the LDPE unit. TSJ is the EPC contractor for the Polyolefins and LDPE units.
Tecnimont offers highly specialised competence in the petrochemical industry and is part of the Italian Maire Tecnimont Group, an international player in engineering, main contracting and technology licensing. Samsung Engineering is one of the fastest growing EPC contractors in the world with over 41 years of experience in the petrochemical, hydrocarbon, power and metallurgy sectors.
The projects will commence in the first quarter of 2012 and are scheduled to run for 14 months. This exciting project represents a series of firsts for Kentech; it is our first petrochemical project in the UAE, our first project for Borouge and our first project with both Tecnimont and Samsung as clients.
John Gilley, Managing Director of Kentech Middle East commented "We are delighted with these awards and we relish the opportunity to demonstrate our capability in front of two new and very important clients on this challenging project for Borouge."
