Al Gharbia Pipe Company, a joint venture between Senaat, one of the largest industrial holding companies in the UAE, and two of Japan’s leading companies in the steel sector; JFE Steel Corporation and Marubeni-Itochu Steel Inc. (MISI), has broken ground in the Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad).
Al Gharbia will be the UAE’s first plant capable of manufacturing large-diameter, thick wall, sour service, longitudinally welded steel pipe to service the oil and gas transportation sector, with the infrastructure and construction sectors as secondary markets.
The plant will be built on a 200,000 square metres plot of land in Kizad and is expected to formally launch operations in 2018. Once fully operational, production capacity is set to reach 240,000 tonnes annually, of which around 40 percent will be exported to neighbouring markets.
Eng. Aqeel Madhi, Chairman of Al Gharbia Pipe Company, said, “This is a critical milestone in the development of Al Gharbia Pipe Company, and I look forward to the plant becoming fully operational in the near future. Al Gharbia is set to become a worldwide benchmark with regards to the manufacturing of welded pipes, both in terms of technology and quality, as well as production efficiency.”
