UAE valve actuation contract awarded

Rotork has won the contract to supply valve actuators and two-wire digital control systems for the TAKREER Inter-Refineries Pipeline Project, a major new network linking the refineries at Sas-Al-Nakl and Ruwais in the UAE. The new pipeline system will eliminate the current need to transport products between the two sites by marine tankers, easing shipping congestion in the busy Umm Al Nar Channel, improving environmental protection by removing the risk of pollution and facilitating the construction of an improved infrastructure on Sadiyat Island and the surrounding areas. Five hundred Rotork actuators will be installed throughout the two parts of the project, involving three 230km pipelines and the expansion of terminal installations at six locations including Abu Dhabi Airport. Rotork is supplying the latest IQ Pro version of its intelligent electric actuator, complete with integral Rotork Pakscan field control units with eight Pakscan hot-standby master stations in three control room cabinets. FEED for the USD 400 million project has been performed by Engineers India Ltd for the Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Co. (TAKREER). The EPC contractor is Dodsal in the UAE and the project management consultant is Tebodin.
