AC wins $15.7m Palm Jabel Ali project

Dubai, September 15, 2008

Advanced Composites (AC) has clinched a Dh58 million ($15.7 million) contract to supply and install the district cooling GRP piping network at Nakheel’s Palm Jabel Ali – Crescent A project.

A subsidiary of Emaar Industries & Investments (EII),  Advanced Composites, is a leading producer of glass reinforced piping (GRP) system solutions for the infrastructural sector.

The company has supplied over 100 kms of GRP pre-insulated pipe systems for a number of district cooling projects in the UAE.

“Firstly, as the nominated sub-contractor for the district cooling works we are extremely pleased by this latest contract win. We strongly value our working relationship with Nakheel on its prestigious projects and this gives us another opportunity to demonstrate our value offering," said AC general manager Dr Raed Al Zubi.

"We are also looking forward to working with the main contractor on this project, Al Rajhi Construction. In terms of challenges, AC needs to focus from the start on moving forward with the execution of this project in line with projects timelines and deliverables."

AC will provide over 20 kilometres of GRP pipes for this project with the pipes ranging in diameter from 50 to 800 millimetres.

The contract will also see AC supply and install the valves required for the district cooling services. All the GRP products will be manufactured at AC’s manufacturing facility in Al Hamriyah Free Zone, Sharjah, he added.

AC has helped pioneer the usage of GRP pipe systems in the application of district cooling in the region and it is fast becoming the material of choice for projects across the UAE and GCC.

Established in Al Hamriyah Free zone in 2000, Advanced Composites has already supplied leading contractors in the UAE such as Darwish, NCTC, Black & Veach and SIXCO with products for drainage and sewerage plants.
