Maire Tecnimont wins EPC contract for Borouge’s new polypropylene unit

By Mary Page Bailey |

Maire Tecnimont S.p.A. (Milan, Italy; www.mairetecnimont.com) has been awarded an engineering, procurement & construction (EPC)  contract by Abu Dhabi Polymer Company (Borouge) for a new polypropylene unit (PP5 Project) in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, in the UAE. Borouge is the joint venture between Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, and Borealis (Vienna, Austria; www.borealisgroup.com, an international producer of petrochemical and plastics solutions.

The scope of work relates to a new Polypropylene Unit (PP5), having a maximum production capacity of 480,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr), and associated facilities, to be integrated within the existing Borouge 3 Complex. The project completion is expected by the end of 2021.

Maire Tecnimont Group has been supporting the development of Abu Dhabi’s petrochemical value chain since the late 90s, with the first Borouge polyolefin complex (Borouge 1) completed in 2001. The Group carried out two additional expansion projects in 2007 and 2010 (Borouge 2 and Borouge 3, respectively). This new EPC contract – which follows the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) phase already successfully completed by Tecnimont – confirms the Group’s outstanding world leadership in polyolefins and further consolidates its industrial footprint in one of its historical markets in the Middle East.

“The UAE is our second home and we have a deep knowledge of the market and its players: it is one of the most suitable environments for a technology-driven EPC contractor such as our Group” said Pierroberto Folgiero, Maire Tecnimont Group Chief Executive Officer. “We are honoured to contribute once again to Abu Dhabi’s development plans, and to further strengthen a mutually beneficial partnership with a prestigious client such as Borouge.”
