Wednesday, 19th July 2017

Zamil Steel Construction Company (ZSCC) was recently awarded a contract by Nalco Champion, valued at SAR 16.8 million (USD 4.5 million), for the Nalco Champion Consolidation Project in the eastern region of Saudi Arabia.

According to the contract, ZSCC will design, supply and erect a secondary supporting structure, composed of pre-engineered steel structural elements, as part of the upgrade of Nalco's existing manufacturing facility in Dammam Second Industrial City. In addition, ZSCC will carry out demolition, relocation and installation works that include process piping, blender tanks, bulk storage tanks, process skids and related electrical and instrumentation works.

These works also include engineering, procurement and construction services needed to complete civil works, external developments, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) works at the project site.

The Nalco Champion expansion project is a fast-track, multicomponent undertaking with complex safety and security requirements and a challenging timeframe that will require an extraordinary level of attention to detail. Care must also be taken to exert zero impact on regular plant production during the facilities upgrade project. With the new expansion, the existing footprint of the Nalco Champion plant will increase to 19,000 square meters.

"Our company was chosen for this project for two important reasons: our capacity to furnish materials that meet the stringent quality standards of Nalco Champion and our ability to manage the project and consolidation in a timely fashion, with minimal disturbance to active business operations," said Mohammed Al Sahib, Director of ZSCC. "We aim to customize our approach and deliver an upgrade consistent with each of the needs expressed by the client, demonstrating our unique offerings and abilities as applied to this type of undertaking."

This project enables ZSCC to venture into the process industry and accomplish the company's objective of expanding its presence in the sector. ZSCC is privileged to work with Nalco Champion, which is part of the Ecolab Company, a Fortune 500 company.
