Vienna/Austria – Borouge has awarded contracts valued at approximately $ 3 billion for Borouge 2, the major expansion project at the company’s production facilities in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
A contract worth approximately $ 1.855 billion for the construction of three new Borstar technology polyolefins units and associated material handling facilities, laboratory facilities and marine works to Tecnimont of Italy, awarded on a lump sum turnkey basis and a contract for an estimated value of $ 1.234 billion with Tecnicas Reunidas of Spain, awarded on a convertible lump sum basis to construct the offsite and utility facilities for the expanded plant.
The contract with Tecnimont will see the development of two Borstar polypropylene plants with a combined annual capacity of 800,000 tons and a new Borstar Enhanced PE plant with an annual capacity of 540,000 tons to complement the existing 600,000 tons per year unit. Preliminary work on the polyolefins unit will begin immediately and is scheduled to be completed in 2010. The contract with Tecnicas Reunidas will see the supply of utilities to all the associated EPC packages for the Borouge 2 project. Preliminary work will begin immediately and is also scheduled to be completed in 2010.
These contract awards represent an important step in the Borouge 2 project which will triple Borouge’s annual production capacity to two million tons of polyolefins. This increased capacity will enable Borouge and its customers to supply high performance products in an increasingly broad range of demanding applications.
