SCHMIDT MIDDLE EAST
Two new Key Projects started in Abu Dhabi
End of May 2015, the ground was broken for a new location of SCHMIDT group inside the „KIZAD“ Khalifa Industrial Zone of Abu Dhabi. On an area of about 21,000 m², construction for the first SCHMIDT operations location in the Abu Dhabi region is to be started at the end of August. A warehouse providing about 1,500 m² of storage area, a silo battery containing nine silos, a tilting platform, a packaging line as well as pertinent offices and social rooms are being built on site. Start of operations is planned for April 2016, providing – in addition to the location planned in Bahrain – one more occasion to supply clients with the complete portfolio of SCHMIDT services including bulk transport.
On behalf of ADT (Abu Dhabi Terminals – a federal joint venture of ADPC and Mubadala), SCHMIDT Middle East has successfully completed planning and supervising construction of a packaging plant for plastic granulate. Total capacity of this facility runs to approx. 150,000 tons p.a. Depending on the clients’ requests, granulate can now be packaged into 25 kg bags, Big Bags or octabins via three bagging lines and four tilting platforms. The packaged goods are put into intermediate storage in dedicated warehouses until further transport.
