Rimera Sends Major Shipment of Valves to Saudi Arabia

MSA plant, the Czech operation of Rimera, has completed deliveries of pipeline valves to US-owned Fluor Corporation this September. The shipment included sixteen 20-inch Class 600 ball valves and 24-inch Class 300 ball valves as well as forty-three C09.2 two-inch Class 150-600 gate valves under a contract worth almost $400,000. The valves will be used in the construction of the Sadara petrochemical complex in the city of Jubail.
"Sadara is a joint venture of Saudi Aramco and DOW Chemical Company, US, which is one of the world's top three petrochemical groups. The petrochemical complex is slated to be completed in early 2015. Over a 10-year horizon, sales of petroleum products will generate close to $10 bln in revenue per year. It is hard to overestimate the importance of the involvement of Rimera's Czech plant in this ambitious Saudi Arabia construction project", MSA Executive Director Vladimir Kononov comments on the shipment.
Fluor is one of the largest companies in the international market for construction of infrastructure and energy facilities, including in the petroleum industry. The company is currently building the ambitious Saudi Aramco Sadara project for which the Czech valves were supplied. The complex will have a production capacity of 1.5 mln tonnes of ethylene and nearly 400,000 tonnes of propylene per year. The complex will also produce a variety of chemicals, such as polyurethanes, propylene oxide, propylene glycol, linear low density polyethylene, amines, and other high-demand petroleum products. The Sadara project is estimated to cost $20 billion.
