Borouge’s production facilities and plants are located at Ruwais (approx. 240KM from Abu Dhabi City). The expansion of the facilities under the Borouge 3 project increased the total production capacity to 4.5 million tons per year.
Our maintainance contract on the Borouge facilities began in January 2014. During the 4.5 year contract, we provided operations, predictive and preventive maintenance, repairs and overhauls for all Heating, Ventilation, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Systems across all three sites on the Borouge Petrochemical facility in Ruwais.
- Brought HVAC Equipment uptime from 40% to 95%.
- Consistently in the top 3 best performing contractors on site, as voted by Borouge site management
- 3rd place (out of 20 contractors) in Borouge Contractor of the Year
- Circa 1 million manhours delivered LTI free
- Circa 100 peak manpower on site
At the time we mobilised to the contract, Borouge HVAC equipment uptime was at 40% on Plants 1 & 2 (with Borouge 3 plant under construction at the time). We were able to bring the HVAC equipment uptime for Plants 1 and 2 to 90% and above due to the dedication and hardwork of our technicians and supervision on site. In 2015, the Borouge 3 plant was also handed over to the maintenance team where we were also able to maintain equipment uptime at 95%.
Despite logistics being a major challenge for the team with the site being located 250km from the main city where materials were procured, we were able to maintain all project materials requirements with no disruption to services.
The client had strict regulations when it came to manpower mobilization with a requirement to conduct their own interviews for each candidate prior to mobilization. By taking a ‘one team approach’ and working very closely with the recruitment teams in our Abu Dhabi offices, we were able to navigate and fulfill these requirements without any reduction in the required manpower
We worked closely with the client to help them problem solve, providing additional services on the XLPE Plant, which was outside of our original contract scope.
During project demobilisation, we recycled and repurposed a substantial amount of tools and equipment from the project. They were moved from site to our storage unit in Musafa where Amit Khumar, Joel Baculo and Margarito Daganio sorted, labelled and stored all of the equipment correctly.
The best of the equipment was repurposed to a Kentech site in Kuwait and the rest was sent to be recycled.
