Sulzer Chemtech has announced that it has completed a range of column revamp projects in record time for the Sadara Chemical Company’s (Sadara) chemical complex.
The facility is the largest ever built in a single phase and located in Jubail Industrial City II, Saudi Arabia. As a result, the manufacturing plants involved were able to minimize the required shut down days and reduce downtime significantly.
The feedback that Sulzer received from Sadara was very positive. Matti Viitanen, Operations Director for Sadara Isocyanates, said: “Sulzer’s quick identification of the necessary parts as well as its manufacturing and delivery readiness were a big help to us, and is exactly the kind of support we look for in our partners. Given the nature of the tailor-made parts and material requirements, the work done was completed in a very short time and helped to support our return to operations quickly.”
Bob Brandt, Vice President of Manufacturing and Engineering at Sadara, added: “We very much appreciate the support we received from Sulzer. The turnaround time and the quality of service were exemplary and highlights the strong partnership we have.”
Vijay Thore, Head Operations – TFS Middle East at Sulzer Chemtech, said: “Customer satisfaction is a key element for Sulzer and we are committed to delivering every project without compromising on quality. The extraordinary team effort to deliver optimal separation solutions for Sadara and our operational excellence are reflected in the enhanced productivity of the different plants. These contracts are only the beginning and we hope to grow our relationship with Sadara with additional projects.”
