SNC-Lavalin recently announced that it has been awarded a contract by Salalah Methanol Company for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of an anhydrous liquid ammonia plant, including its utilities and off-site infrastructure, in the city of Salalah, located in the Sultanate of Oman.

The project is expected to begin in March 2017, with SNC-Lavalin initially performing the early works programme. Upon closing of financing by Salalah Methanol Company, expected to occur in June 2017, SNC-Lavalin will continue with the engineering, procurement of equipment, construction and commissioning of the facility, which will produce anhydrous liquid ammonia using a technology provided by Linde Group.

SNC-Lavalin’s Abu Dhabi office will be responsible for the project delivery, supported by local and international resources, while maximising the use of in-country expertise and local workforce during the construction phase.

“SNC-Lavalin has gained direct and relevant experience across our four sectors of activity over the past 40 years in United Arab Emirates and the greater Middle East region,” said Jose J Suarez, president, mining and metallurgy, SNC-Lavalin. “This new contract is testament of our continued commitment to the region and strong expertise in delivering world-class industrial facilities, while integrating a wide range of technologies in our projects,” he added. “We are proud to work with Salalah Methanol Company in developing this new exciting project,” added Suarez.
