Mott MacDonald wins contract on chemical storage terminal development in UAE

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Solvochem FZCO, Dubai, and UAE to provide consultancy services for engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services on the expansion of the existing chemical storage terminal at Jebel Ali Free Zone. This development includes construction of additional bulk storage and warehouse facilities.

Solvochem Group is a leading chemical distributor operating widely in the Middle East and Africa, with diverse businesses in petrochemicals, solvents, edible oils, plastics as well as process chemicals. The Group has several bulk chemical terminals and marketing offices which are strategically located in Jordan, Egypt, Kenya, Lebanon and Holland to serve Middle Eastern customers.

Currently, the Jebel Ali terminal has 1,350m2 warehouse facility for storage of drummed hazardous and flammable materials. The expansion project is designed to meet the substantial demand for chemicals in the GCC region and Indian subcontinent and will see phased construction of an additional 1,350m2 warehouse facility with bulk storage tanks.

Mott MacDonald’s team of oil and gas professionals will provide conceptual design, feasibility assessments, engineering services as well as assistance with tendering and construction management.

The multi product storage terminal will enable Solvochem to store more products, making the terminal a hub for Gulf, African and Asian markets. The expanded bulk storage facility will store high and low flash chemicals, and allow for drumming and bulk loading to tanker trucks. The project also includes bulk import facilities at adjacent chemical tanker berths. Provisions in the master plan are being made to allow for future storage expansion.

Sam Mathew, Mott MacDonald’s divisional manager said, “We are delighted to be awarded this prestigious contract, particularly at this time. A long term approach is being considered for the phased development of the facility to meet the expected demand on recovery of the current economic situation“

The project is due for completion by the 2nd quarter of 2010.
