Cape plc has announced that its Saudi Arabia operations have received a scaffold contract amendment to provide for an increased scope of 107,000 sqm of suspended scaffold and 182,000 sqm tower scaffold with an extended hire term for their Jazan project.

Saudi Aramco’s Jazan Refinery and Terminal (JRTP) is being constructed on the southern coast of the Red Sea and coastal part of the City of Bish. The refinery will cover an area of 12km² and will process 400,000 barrels per day of Arabian Heavy and Arabian Medium crudes to produce 80 million barrels per day of gasoline, 250 million barrels per day of diesel and more than one million tons per annum of benzene and Para xylene petrochemical products.

Daewoo E&C’s plant construction projects are delivering a major role along with JGC in JRTP for Saudi Aramco.

Cape, which operates as Cape RB Hilton in Saudi Arabia, has developed a successful relationship with Daewoo in delivering the original scope and is delighted to secure this amendment award and strengthen the business ties of both organisations.

Paul Cockerill, Managing Director KSA & Bahrain commented:

“This subcontract amendment award is an important win for Cape RB Hilton and firming up our service offering with Daewoo E&C. It is the result of commitment to deliver a safe and reliable service to our customer. This increase in value of existing ongoing work plays a key share for our revenue in 2017.”
