Yorkshire-based industrial services group Cape has been awarded a £12M contract to provide thermal insulation works on the Borouge phase three petrochemical project in Abu Dhabi.
The firm has been operating in Abu Dhabi since 1979 and the contract comes in the wake of its successful work of the thermal insulation works on Borouge phases one and two in Ruwais.
The award was made by Consolidated Contractors International Company and Linde Engineering - the main Engineering, Construction and Procurement (EPC) contractors for the construction of the ethane cracker.
The phase three expansion will allow Borouge’s polyolefins production capacity at Ruwais to quadruple to over 4.5 million tonnes a year by 2013. This means it will become the largest integrated polyolefins site in the world.
Borouge is a leading provider of plastics solutions, with influence across the Middle East, the Indian sub-continent, Asia Pacific and Africa.
“We are delighted to receive this award and to continue our long standing involvement with Borouge - the construction of one of the most impressive downstream facilities in the world,” said Cape chief executive Martin May.
