All three projects are scheduled for completion by 2020, said Bilfinger
The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) has announced that it has awarded German construction company Bilfinger three separate projects during the first quarter of 2019. Under the terms of the contract, Bilfinger’s Middle East division will be involved in installation, replacement, and modification services in Adnoc’s Ruwais-based refining unit.
The firm will design, supply, install and upgrade solutions for the hydrocracker (HCK) and hydroskimmer (HSK) units. It added that tie-ins are expected to be carried out during a major turnaround in 2020.
Regarding the second contract, Bilfinger will deliver specialised engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for the installation of Bernoulli filters. This is for HCK unit’s seawater network as well as LPG transfer pumps and progressive cavity pumps at the HSK plant.
Bilfinger’s third contract is also for services in the same complex. The company will perform piping modifications for service water and eye shower facilities. The scope of work includes the replacement of certain lines, with associated civil and structural works for above-ground and underground pipe network systems.
Commenting on the 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 optimisation 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 stated.
