Bilfinger said it won three separate projects by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) for work at the latter’s Ruwais refinery.
The contracts, secured by Bilfinger’s Middle East division for the first quarter of this year, involve turnkey installation, replacement and modification services at the refining unit and are roughly valued at multi-million dollars.
Bilfinger, a global engineering and industrial services provide, said it will design, supply and install upgrade solutions related to hydrocracker (HCK) and hydroskimmer (HSK) units. Tie-ins are expected to be carried out during a major turnaround in 2020.
“It is definitely a great start into 2019 for our team in Abu Dhabi,” said Ali Vezvaei, president and CEO of Bilfinger Middle East.
“We are grateful for ADNOC’s continued trust in our capabilities and equally delighted to build upon our long-standing relationship focusing on the optimisation of their already world-class downstream operations at the epi-centre of the country’s hydrocarbons industry in Ruwais,” he added.
Under a second contract, Bilfinger will provide specialised EPC services for the installation of Bernoulli filters for the HCK unit’s seawater network as well as LPG transfer pumps and progressive cavity pumps at the HSK plant.
At the same industrial complex, Bilfinger was also awarded a contract to perform piping modifications for service water and eye shower facilities. The scope involves the replacement of certain lines, with associated civil and structural works for above-ground and underground pipe network systems.
All three projects are expected to be completed in 2020.
