SICIM Further Expands its Presence in Saudi Arabia (KSA)
SICIM has recently been awarded a project by the Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) intended to build, on an EPC basis, a sales gas delivery system to supply the new power and desalination plant at Yanbu 3 in Al Madinah Province (KSA).
The sales gas delivery system consists of a new 18.6 km of 36” pipeline, including isolation valves, instrumentation, filtration and metering skids, electrical system and communications facilities. In addition, a new fuel gas regulation station will be installed at the delivery point to provide gas filtration/separation, metering, fuel heating and pressure reducing facilities.
A major challenge is the tight schedule, which anticipates the implementation of the full EPC works within an 18-month period starting from the site handover by the client. SICIM will avail itself of the existing engineering, procurement and contruction organisation already present in the country and the support of a strategic local partner with the aim of diversifying its interests from the oil and gas industry to the developing market of infrastructures.
