- PRESS RELEASE
Borouge, a leading provider of innovative, value creating plastics solutions, showcased its broad range of latest solutions that address the challenge of clean water distribution at the Water World Middle East Conference and Exhibition held on 4 February 2013, in Doha, Qatar.
In his opening speech, the Minister highlighted the importance of the Water World Middle East Conference and Exhibition as a platform for discussion of strategic and technical issues and showcasing the latest solutions to meet rising water demands in the region.
H.E. Dr. Mohammed bin Saleh Al-Sada visited the Borouge stand accompanied with H.E. Juma Rashid Al Dhaheri Ambassador of the UAE to Qatar where they were briefed about the Company's portfolio of sustainable solutions for the infrastructure and pipe systems manufactured from Borouge's polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).
"As part of its drive to diversify away from upstream oil and gas production and refining, Abu Dhabi has been undertaking a large scale development and expansion of its petrochemical related industries over the last decade," said Borouge's Application Marketing Manager for Pipe Andrew Wedgner in the presentation he delivered during the conference.
"Many of the industrial processes involve the use of large quantities of seawater as means of controlling the temperature at which the processes take place. Consequently, ADNOC was interested in developing a 'home grown' industrial water pipeline industry, using materials that are produced by some of its subsidiaries like Borouge," he added
He pointed out, "PE and PP resins produced by Borouge can be used to manufacture durable pipeline solutions that have a high level of corrosion resistance. They have the ability to operate under high pressures, show resistance to any surge pressures and ensure a high integrity long life jointing system."
"The technology to produce large diameter PE and PP pipelines of up to 3m in diameter is now also available in the region and hence they have been employed on two major petrochemical plants, with each intake pipeline being capable of supplying up to 50,000 m3 / hour of cooling water," said Wedgner.
During the conference, Wedgner introduced the audience to Borouge and its wide range of innovative pipe systems solutions, focusing on the large diameter industrial water pipeline applications in the Middle East and highlighting the benefits of using pipelines made of PE and PP from Borouge.
He discussed in his presentation how pipes and fittings manufactured from PE and PP are best suited to meet the engineering challenges of industrial cooling water applications, particularly seawater intakes and outfalls before going on to provide an overview of major projects on which such pipelines have been successfully used.
In 2007, Borouge and Borealis initiated the global 'Water for the World' programme that fosters local knowledge and partnerships to provide sustainable solutions for the availability of safe water and sanitation.
Through this initiative, Borouge has directly reached some 300,000 people all over the world who do not have a proper access to clean water and sanitation by bringing its expertise to community field projects, advancing science and best practices, engaging stakeholders, leveraging its leadership in innovative plastics solutions and promoting water efficiency in its operations.
