Abu Dhabi Melamine Industry Company (ADMIC) is due to issue a tender in early August for the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract to build a melamine plant in Ruwais. Two companies responded to an initial inquiry in mid-July for the estimated $175 million contract. They are the US' Fluor Corporation and Uhde of Germany. The project centres on the construction of a 80,000- tonne-a-year plant (MEED 7:4:06).
Milan-based Eurotecnica is the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contractor; Australia's WorleyParsons is the project management consultant (PMC). Feedstock urea for the melamine plant will be supplied by Ruwais Fertiliser Company (Fertil), although a final supply agreement has still to be signed. Production is due to start in the first quarter of 2009.
