Sadara Chemical Company awards Roxtec cables and seals supply contract

petchem3Saudi Arabia’s Sadara Chemical Company has awarded UK-based Roxtec a contract to supply blast proof cables and pipe seals for its upcoming petrochemical plant on the east coast of the Kingdom

The facility, known as the Sadara project, is touted to become one of the world’s largest petrochemical plants. The project is owned by Saudi Aramco and the Dow Chemical Company.

The plant is coming up in Jubail Industrial City and is scheduled for completion in 2015. The integrated complex would comprise 26 chemical manufacturing units.

The facility would produce products such as polyurethanes, propylene oxide, elastomers, low density polyethylene, glycol ethers and amines, according to company sources.

Roxtec managing director Graham O’Hare said, “This is a great project win in the petrochemical sector. Our seals are being used in sub-stations, motor control rooms, the utilities area, power rooms and the chlorine plant. We have also supplied air and gas tight seals for pressurised rooms.”

Roxtec has been operating in the Middle East and working with engineering, procurement and construction contractors and cable management suppliers since 2004.
