Zamil Steel Buildings Vietnam Co Ltd, a subsidiary of Saudi Arabia’s Zamil Industrial Investment Co (Zamil Industrial), was recently awarded a SR15 million ($4 million) contract for the Nghi Son Refinery project in Vietnam.

The contract’s scope of work includes the design, fabrication, supply and erection of 10 pre-engineered buildings spread over an area of 23,557 sq m in Nghi Son, Thanh Hoa province, which lies in the southern region of Hanoi. The company considers this project to be its most significant achievement in contributing to the infrastructure development plan of the Vietnamese government.

The Nghi Son Refinery project is the largest greenfield refinery project to be constructed in Vietnam and one of the largest ongoing infrastructure projects in Southeast Asia. The Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical complex is being developed by a consortium of international companies, including PetroVietnam, Idemitsu Kosan, Kuwait Petroleum International and Mitsui Chemicals.

The 400-hectare project, which is expected to cost $6.2 billion, will have a designed capacity of 200,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil with the possibility to increase this capacity to 400,000 bpd. Construction began in October 2013, and the project is expected to enter commercial operation by early 2017.

It has successfully and professionally supplied more than 6,000 buildings in Vietnam and the Asia Pacific region,” said a company statement.

Among the projects Zamil Steel Vietnam built over the years were a metals factory for the client Pmb Phu My Cold Roll Mills, the Cam Rawh Sugar Plant for PEB Indo China Ltd, a factory for the client Obayashi Company and a fertiliser plant for Petro Vn-phu My Fertiliser Project.
