Honeywell has been awarded four major contracts, worth a combined $40 million over an 18-month duration, for the Borouge petrochemicals complex expansion in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.

Honeywell will be the main automation contractor (MAC) for this project, providing engineering, procurement and construction (EPCs) contractors involved in the project with integrated control and safety systems. 

It will also install Honeywell control and safety systems, Experion Process Knowledge System C300, Safety Manager, and Advanced Process Controls to allow for operational integration, improved production, increased safety and reliability, and maximum operability and profitability. The Real Time Information Management System will provide Borouge 3 with business solutions that streamline, centralize and optimize operations, allowing for further profitability and productivity.

“We continue to see countries in the Middle East, such as the UAE, invest in growing their petrochemical capacity, as part of economic diversification strategies,” said Mansour Belhadj, sales director, Honeywell Process Solutions, Middle East.

“With the Gulf region’s share in the global petrochemical market expected to grow to 20 percent by 2015, there is also a corresponding need for reliable, cost-effective processes, such as the solutions selected for Borouge 3, which can ensure that operational efficiencies are an integral part of the growth process.”

Borouge 3 is the latest expansion of Borouge’s polyolefins plant in Abu Dhabi and will manufacture ethylene, polyethylene, polypropylene, and low-density polyethylene (LDPE), alongside associated butane, utilities and offsite facilities. Honeywell’s technologies have previously been implemented in the Borouge 1 project in 1999 and the Borouge 2 project in 2010, and will continue to help Borouge meet its strategic goal of expanding the production capacity of the plant, making it the largest integrated polyolefins site in the world.
