Jacobs bags PMC contract of Inochem's soda ash project
Jun '15
Jacobs Engineering Group has been awarded the second phase of InoChem’s project management consultancy (PMC) services contract for a soda ash and calcium chloride manufacturing complex.

“Under the terms of the agreement, Jacobs is providing PMC services during all phases of the project which is going to be set up in Yanbu Industrial City, Saudi Arabia,” Jacobs Engineering said in a press release.

The services are being led and closely supervised by Jacobs’ Al-Khobar office, with work being executed out of multiple locations around the world and specialist support from its offices in Shanghai, Abu Dhabi and Antwerp.

InoChem is the first manufacturer of soda ash in Saudi Arabia and among the Gulf countries and is as well as the biggest manufacturer of calcium chloride in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

Abdul Aziz Yahya Al-Muaiyyad, CEO at IDEA Soda Ash & Calcium Chloride Co. (ISACC), said, “We are delighted to continue working with Jacobs on our manufacturing complex in Yanbu Industrial City.”

“We are building one of the Kingdom’s strategic projects to diversify economy and reduce dependence on oil exports,” he added.

The project apart from supplying its products to a number of downstream projects, will also contribute to achieving a Saudization rate of up to 75 per cent of the total workforce,” Al-Muaiyyad informed.

Jacobs’ group vice president Bassim Shebaro stated, "Jacobs has been involved with the InoChem project since commencing work on the concept phase.”

“We are proud to have been selected to continue our work on one of the most strategic projects in the Kingdom,” Shebaro too added.

“Our services are being led from our Saudi operations, which further demonstrates our commitment to Saudization through the recruitment, training and development of local Saudi talent,” he observed.

ISACC is a Saudi limited liability company based in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia and is leading the development and establishment of InoChem to own, build and operate the industrial complex.

Jacobs is one of the world's largest and most diverse providers of technical professional and construction services. (AR)
