MMEC Mannesmann GmbH (MMEC) has announced the opening of its branch office in Abu Dhabi that will function as a regional headquarters to meet the growing demand for speciality services in oil and gas, chemicals, metals and mining, and renewables sectors in the Middle East region.
The German engineering contractor is known for executing complex projects (upstream and downstream) for oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical industries, covering the entire cycle from early project development, feasibility studies, including hydraulic and case studies, conceptual and basic design, front-end engineering design (FEED) up to the implementation of turnkey projects.
The company is currently working on a number of projects across the region, including the recently-won Sulphur Pipeline Project by ADNOC Sour Gas in Abu Dhabi. The large-scale engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) turnkey contract awarded earlier this year involves installing the entire pipeline system with a capacity to transport 10 000 tpd liquid sulfur to a sulfur granulation station via pipeline.
Under the leadership of General Manager Anas Al Juaidi, the Abu Dhabi team will work closely with the existing office in Dubai and the headquarters in Germany towards strengthening the company’s presence in the region and leverage on the opportunities arising from the oil and gas, chemical and mining sectors.
“On the back of oil price going up by more than 60% in the past two years, reaching today equivalent levels of 2015, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region’s economy is projected to grow at over 3% in 2019, and, according to the World Bank, is expected to remain strong for the next two years. This, along with various on-going policy and economic reforms, will continue to drive growth for key infrastructure, oil and gas, mining and renewables sectors,” said Oliver Apelt, CEO, MMEC Mannesmann.
“We are excited to expand our presence in the UAE to develop new and deeper cooperation with local clients with whom we wish to achieve a common goal of delivering world-class projects in most smart, safe and sustainable manners, using our global expertise and technological know-how,” said Anas Aljuaidi, General Manager, MMEC Mannesmann.
