ADNOC awards multi-million dollar EPC contracts to Bilfinger

10190079343 165a4d5f2b zThe Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has awarded Bilfinger three separate projects in the first quarter of 2019

The contracts, secured by Bilfinger’s Middle East division, involve turnkey installation, replacement and modification services in ADNOC’s Ruwais-based refining unit.

Bilfinger, an engineering and industrial services provider in the UAE, will design, supply and install upgrade solutions for hydrocracker (HCK) and hydroskimmer (HSK) units. Tie-ins are expected to be carried out during a major turnaround in 2020.

Under a second contract, Bilfinger will provide specialised EPC services for the installation of Bernoulli filters for the seawater network of the HCK unit as well as LPG transfer pumps and progressive cavity pumps at the HSK plant.

Bilfinger was also awarded a contract at the same industrial complex to perform piping modifications for service water and eye shower facilities. The scope involves replacing 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.

Commenting on the triple contract wins, Ali Vezvaei, president and CEO of Bilfinger Middle East, said, “We are grateful for ADNOC’s continued trust in our capabilities and equally delighted to build upon our long-standing relationship focusing on the optimization of their already world-class downstream operations at the epicentre of the country’s hydrocarbons industry in Ruwais.”

“It is definitely a great start into 2019 for our team in Abu Dhabi,” he added.
