SNC-Lavalin wins EPCM contract for aluminum smelter in Abu Dhabi  

By Gerald Ondrey |

SNC-Lavalin, Inc. (Montreal, Canada; www.snclavalin.com) has been awarded an engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) services contract by Emirates Aluminum Company Ltd. PJSC (EMAL) for Phase ll of its smelter in Al Taweelah, in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The contract involves the EPCM services for a new aluminum smelter, including a 1,000 MW power plant and a 1.7 km-long potline, the longest ever built. Once completed, the EMAL Phase ll smelter will produce 525,000 metric tons (m.t.) of aluminum per year using an improved version of Dubal DX technology, which allows for greater operating efficiencies than traditional technologies. EMAL Phase II smelter is expected to be fully operational in 2014. SNC-Lavalin recently completed its EPCM mandate for Phase I of EMAL smelter, which has a capacity of 750,000 m.t./yr of aluminium and included the construction of a 2,000-MW power plant.
