This multi-million dollar award of additional scope is an amendment to the contract which was awarded earlier and which was also multi-million dollars in value. 

The project is being managed by a global Rolta team working out of the United States, India and Saudi Arabia.

Sadara is a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Dow Chemical Company.

With a total investment of about USD 20 bn, Sadara is now building and will own and operate an integrated chemical complex in Jubail Industrial City II in Saudi Arabia.

Comprised of 26 world scale manufacturing units, the Sadara complex will possess flexible cracking capabilities and will produce over three million metric tons of high value-added chemicals and performance plastics products.

Rolta will provide a suite of engineering solutions designed to support process engineering, technical support, process automation and control, asset integrity, analytical lab and standards, and document management.

“Successful implementation of the engineering system is vital to the support and efficient operation of the Sadara Complex,” said Taher Nemer, project manager of manufacturing and engineering systems, Sadara Project.

“We have partnered with Rolta on this challenging project because they’ve demonstrated the breadth of their sophisticated engineering IT expertise and have proven global delivery capabilities that are required for such an important project.”
