International System EST (ISE) has selected Emerson Industrial Automation to supply control cabinets for a utilities upgrade project at SABIC’s Petrokemya Arabian Petrochemical site in Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia. This significant order is for four large cabinets which will contain over 140 ASCO Numatics solenoid valves and a variety of other control equipment. The cabinets will be supplied fully assembled and certified – ready for installation.
Salem Al-Khaldi, President of International System EST, says: “We chose Emerson for this important project because of their proven ability to engineer and manufacture cabinets such as these. They have the capabilities in-house to design and build these cabinets and deliver them to site fully certified. All we have to do is make one electrical connection and then connect the pneumatics at the bulkhead. This frees up our own engineering time through the design, engineering and installation phases of the project.”
Mehmet Caner, Regional Manager for Emerson’s ASCO Numatics in the Middle East, says: “We are pleased that ISE and SABIC have recognised our abilities and awarded us this project. We have full capabilities in our regional headquarters in Dubai to support our customers in the supply of cabinets and panels such as this. We are able to carry out all the work, from engineering design through to assembly and Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT).”
The cabinets, the largest of which is 1.8m × 1.8m × 0.5m, will be ready for FAT within 10 weeks of drawing approvals. They will be used to automate valves located on the demineralised water and water purification plants on the site.
