June 22, 2020 [Trade Arabia] – Global engineering and industrial services provider Bilfinger Tebodin Middle East has been awarded a contract to provide front-end engineering design (Feed) and project management consultancy (PMC) services for the development of a bulk liquid storage terminal at Khalifa Port in Abu Dhabi.
The deal was awarded by Arabian Chemical Terminals (ACT), a pioneer in handling and distribution of bulk liquid products in Saudi Arabia.
Established in 1985, the Saudi group has been responsible for commissioning the first ever-commercial liquid chemical bulk storage terminal in the kingdom.
Over the years, ACT pioneered the efficient handling and distribution of bulk liquid products within the GCC region and has over 35 years’ experience in this field.
On the contract win, Albert Vollema, the Project Director of Bilfinger Tebodin Middle East, said: “The greenfield project is considered to be strategic for ACT as well as Khalifa Port and the wider region including Kizad and ZonesCorp since this will enhance the capabilities in handling and distribution of liquid bulk products and gases.”
“The project will benefit existing customers and attract new customers in the region seeking liquid bulk storage and distribution and we, at Bilfinger Tebodin Middle East, are excited to be part of this,” he added.
ACT General Manager at Abu Dhabi Kasper Castricum said Kizad was an integral part of Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030 that holds a roadmap for suitable growth of the emirate’s economy.
“We look forward to working with Bilfinger Tebodin Middle East as Kizad is embarking to set new standards for industrial zone infrastructure, environment, and operations and we are certain of Bilfinger’s expertise and knowledge to execute and deliver,” he added.
