Samsung Engg wins Meed project award
Dubai, May 14, 2014
Samsung Engineering said it has received the Meed Quality Awards for Projects, in association with Mashreq 2014 for its Ruwais Fertilizer Industries (Fertil)-2 ammonia and urea plant in UAE.
Hosted by Meed, at the Gala Awards ceremony in Dubai, Samsung Engineering’s VP Young Kim and Uhde ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions’ CEO Alfred Hoffman celebrated its great partnership.
Samsung Engineering had won in 2009 the EPC contract to build the ammonia and urea plant from Fetil, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) in 2009.
Located in Ruwais Industrial Zone about 250 km west of Abu Dhabi, the project allows Fertil to double its output of urea fertilizer production. Moreover, the project had helped strengthen Ruwais’s position as a major player in the region’s petrochemical sector.
The plant has a full capacity of 2,000 metric tons per day (MTPD) for ammonia and 3,500 metric tons per day (MTPD) for urea and achieved completion in June 2013 with 10 million man hours without an incident of lost time.
As the only Korean EPC contractor receiving this honour for the third consecutive year, Samsung Engineering’s FERTIL-2 Ammonia & Urea project is celebrating after being named a ‘GCC Oil & Gas Project of the Year,’ said a statement from the Korean firm.
The panel of judges have chosen Samsung as ‘Abu Dhabi’s best’ in the category for its excellent project management ability in terms of economic & social impacts, environment, engineering, and design as well as construction, it added.
Samsung Engineering’s VP Young Kim expressed delight at receiving recognition for its project execution solutions for the third consecutive year.
"We prioritize on long term relationships with our clients as well as to the community by which we are fully committed to local developments to share in global co-prosperity," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
