Another plant for Abu Dhabi?

Another plant for Abu Dhabi?
Published: 18 February 2008

A delegation from Nippon Oil Corporation Japan has paid a visit to the headquarters of Al Qudra Holding – the first general investment company in Abu Dhabi - following the joint cooperation deal signed in Tokyo between the two parties back in December 2007.

The visit signals the start of the implementation of a series of action plans, most urgent of which, is to conduct a study on the construction of a new cement plant in the emirate of Abu Dhabi designed to produce low sulphate cement. The action plan stipulates that Nippon Oil will be responsible for the technical aspect of the project, while Al Qudra Holding takes on the marketing side of the study.

“This plant will be the first of its kind in the Middle East,” said Mr. Makoto Satani, Executive Vice President of Nippon Oil Company. “Our cement should be environment-friendly and resistant to erosion. During the first phase of the project our products will be mainly used for drainage channels and coastal projects.”
