Toronto Stock Exchange-listed engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor SNC-Lavalin has been picked by the UAE’s Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) — touted as the world’s largest aluminium producer — to deliver engineering and project management services (EPMS) for its Al Taweelah and Jebel Ali Complexes, as well as its Al Taweelah alumina refinery project.
The Canadian company will provide integrated engineering services for the power plant, energy distribution network, water desalination system, aluminium smelting process, and casting and carbon plants at EGA’s Al Taweelah and Jebel Ali smelters.
Additionally, SNC-Lavalin will deliver engineering services for Al Taweelah alumina refinery, the UAE’s first alumina refinery that is currently being built at a cost of $3.3bn (AED12.1bn) in Abu Dhabi.
Under the scope of its contract, SNC-Lavalin will also provide project management services, in addition to construction management, cost control and planning, contract engineering, and project portfolio management for EGA.
Commenting on the contract, president of resources at SNC-Lavalin, Craig Muir — who was ranked #45 in the 2019 Construction Week Power 100 — said: “Over the past 15 years, we have been successfully delivering EGA’s large-scale projects to the highest quality and safety standards.
“We have established a long track record of delivering some of the world’s leading mining and metallurgy projects,” Muir said, adding that SNC-Lavalin's experience had helped it secure the project win.
