Big projects around the world

The world is our natural market, which is why we are present in more than 81 countries, doing some outstanding projects, as detailed below.
Project Al Dabb’Iya (ADCO)—United Arab Emirates
The expansion of Al Dabb’Iya is part of the United Arab Emirates’ strategic project to increase crude oil production from 2.7 to 3.5 million barrels per day. This plan affects several oil deposits located throughout Abu Dhabi, where it is located.
The Al Dabb’Iya project has been developed in a protected environment of marine flora and fauna. This location has added complexity to the work carried out both on land and in the waters of the Persian Gulf to make it compatible with and respectful of the environment.
Johan Sverdrup (Statoil)—Norway
This offshore field, named after the first president (1884–1889) of Norwegian parliamentary democracy, was discovered in 2010. Consisting of four marine platforms, it is one of the largest deposits in the North Sea. ULMA’s flanges, manufactured according to the client Kvaerner’s own design, have been installed in the system for lifting crude oil to the production platform, a metal megastructure of more than 26,000 tons that is the largest manufactured by the Norwegian shipyard to date.
Jazan Export refinery—Saudi Arabia
This refinery in southwest Saudi Arabia is one of the key pieces of the Jazan Economic City Project. For this mega-project, in which world-class EPC engineering companies have participated (Técnicas Reunidas, Hyundai, SK, etc.), we have supplied a wide range of products in terms of size, materials and parts. This project is evidence of ULMA’s enormous production capacities, which are within the reach of very few flange manufacturers.
Modernization of the Talara refinery—Peru
The modernization of this refinery includes the design, construction and implementation of the equipment and installations needed for the treatment of crude oil. ULMA Advanced Forged Solutions will participate in the process through the customized design and supply of flanges. This project will allow a considerable increase in the plant’s capacity, from 65,000 to 95,000 barrels of crude oil per day.
