Khalifa Economic Zones Abu Dhabi (KEZAD) and Al Jazeera Steel Products Co have announced the groundbreaking ceremony of the region’s first Rolling Mill with rail production capability in Abu Dhabi. This comes as the region embarks on plans to build a GCC rail network connecting UAE, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Qatar, leading to an increasing demand for railway steel parts.
Collaborating for Innovative Rail Plant
The new rail plant, established over an area of 210,000 square meters in KEZAD, aims to spearhead technological advancements, enhance steel manufacturing capabilities, and meet the growing demand for high-quality steel products. The state-of-the-art, 450,000 tonnes per annum medium section mill from POMINI LRM (main technology supplier) will cater to the rising customer demand for Al Jazeera’s products, including rails and other steel products.
Boosting Self-Reliance and Infrastructure
Mohamed Al Khadar Al Ahmed, CEO of KEZAD Group, highlights that Al Jazeera’s products will enhance self-reliance on quality products for upcoming projects in the country and the region. The establishment of the rail plant will also contribute to Abu Dhabi’s well-established infrastructure and connectivity.
Strategic Base in the UAE
Sheikha Amal Suhail Salim Bahwan, Chairperson of Al Jazeera Steel Products Co, emphasizes the strategic advantages of operating within KEZAD, providing a strong base in the UAE. With the new mill, Al Jazeera will be well-equipped to supply rail products and other MSM products to infrastructure, construction, and oil and gas projects in the GCC markets, alongside their global customers.
