The plant is expected to have an annual design capacity of about 1.4 million tonnes of paraxylene and 0.5 million tonnes of benzene. ChemaWEyaat will hold 51% equity and Indorama 49% in the joint venture company to be known as Abu Dhabi Chemicals Integration Company LLC (Tacaamol).
“We are very excited about this venture with ChemaWEyaat which represents our maiden entry into the Gulf region” said Mr. Aloke Lohia, Group CEO of Indorama Ventures. “It heralds long-term business success for Tacaamol. Both parties will contribute their expertise and resources, optimizing the benefits that Abu Dhabi offers to create a world class Aromatics chain industry that will result in sustainable economic and social development.”
Echoing the statement of Indorama Ventures’ Group CEO, Mr. Ahmed Saeed Al Mheiri, ChemaWEyaat Chief Executive Officer, said: “We welcome Indorama Ventures to Abu Dhabi and have full confidence in the future success of the Tacaamol Aromatics Plant. The teams of both parties have worked hard to reach this stage and we look forward to their continued spirit of cooperation during project implementation and the establishment of future operations.”
In 2012 ChemaWEyaat engaged the services of Foster Wheeler as Project Management Consultants (PMC) for the project, which includes substantial infrastructure work on the MCAG site to support the aromatics plant and, in due course, the other complexes that are planned to be developed there. During the summer of 2013, further contracts were placed covering the FEED for the utilities, offsites and infrastructure, and the site preparation activities.
ChemaWEyaat was established by Emiri Decree in November 2008 to further develop Abu Dhabi’s domestic chemicals industry, complementing ADNOC's subsidiaries Abu Dhabi Polymers Company (Borouge), Ruwais Fertilizer Industries (Fertil) and International Petroleum Investment Company’s (IPIC) international chemicals subsidiaries. ChemaWEyaat is jointly owned by IPIC, the Abu Dhabi Investment Council and Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
