Our materials are specifically designed using Borstar technology, for the production of thick-walled polyethylene pipes
Borouge, a leading petrochemical company that provides innovative and differentiated polyolefin solutions, supplied its polyethylene material to a leading UAE pipe manufacturer to produce 1.8 metre diameter pipes that will be installed for the processing critical cooling water system at the new Borouge 4 project in Al Ruways Industrial City.
Union Pipes Industry (UPI), one of the MENA region’s manufacturers of large and durable pipes and a long-term value chain partner, used Borouge’s innovative materials to produce 2 kilometres of polyethylene pipes which have a flow rate of approximately 26,000 cubic meters per hour, equivalent to filling a 25-metre swimming pool in less than one minute.
Localising the manufacturing of the pipes allowed for the production of very long length pipes, with each segment measuring 24 metres, unlike the industry standard of approximately 12 metres. Long length pipes require less joints and welds, enabling faster and safer installation. For these benefits, the pipes were selected for the Borouge 4 project.
Khalfan AlMuhairi, Senior Vice President Region MEAE, Borouge: “Our materials are specifically designed using Borstar® technology, for the production of thick-walled polyethylene pipes. By offering more durable and reliable pipe solutions, Borouge continues to boost the sustainability of pipe networks by making them safer, longer lasting and more efficient. This helps eliminate water leakage whilst at the same time offering energy savings.”
Borouge’s innovative and non-metallic pipe solutions are durable and allow the pipes to have a long service life of over 50 years. Borouge’s polyethylene materials are also lightweight and able to withstand ground movements and are the material of choice for key municipal projects in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
