Abu Dhabi to host Chemical Week awards
Abu Dhabi, August 8, 2011
The World Refining Association will host the Middle East Chemical Week (MECW) Awards 2011, which will recognise and reward organisations setting standards of excellence in the petrochemical and fertiliser industries across the Middle East region.
To be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (Adnec), the 2011 MECW Awards will take place on October 17. Participants from both conferences will convene to celebrate the remarkable accomplishments of companies that are paving the future for these two lucrative industries.
Three prestigious awards will be handed out at MECW 2011 to both petrochemical and fertiliser organisations. The first award is for Plant of the Year, which will recognise a plant that has displayed operational excellence or made significant contributions to the environment.
Project of the Year will be the second award for a producer or engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor who has implemented a new build, revamp or capacity expansion project on time and within budget with a strong safety record.
Lastly, the Technology of the Year award will be presented to a company for developing or improving upon an existing technology, which propels the industry forward.
Dominica Andrews, project director, The World Refining Association, said: “We appreciate all the steps taken by companies to further progress in the petrochemical and fertiliser industries. The awards are symbols of excellence presented to companies that strive to be the best in these productive industries. They reinforce the notion that companies in the two industries are highly competitive, making the GCC region a key arena for the production of anything related to petrochemicals and fertilisers.”
