CCC takes Olefins II cracker construction work

24 February 2006

Athens-based Consolidated Contractors International Company (CCC) has started mobilising on the $110 million construction subcontract covering the new ethylene cracker at the Olefins II petrochemical complex in the Shuaiba industrial area. The subcontract was placed by Paris-based Technip, which won the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build the 850,000-tonne-a-year cracker last year (MEED 1:7:05).

The subcontract's scope of works covers construction, erection of the superstructure and electro-mechanical and pipe installation works at the facility. The total construction period is about two years. A number of other subcontracts have been awarded on the estimated $2,000 million complex. The local National Company for Mechanical & Electrical Works (Kharafi National) is working on the civils package covering the ethylene oxide/ethylene glycol plant, awarded to the US/South Korean joint venture of Foster Wheeler and Hyundai Engineering & Construction Company last autumn (MEED 25:11:05).

Several other local contractors, including Gulf Spic and Alghanim International General Contracting & Trading Company, are working on the various pipe installation and mechanical and electrical works packages on the complex's infrastructure (MEED 20:1:06).
