Borouge Innovation Centre

This project was to design and engineer an Innovation centre, located in Abu Dhabi, with a total Project size of 65,000 sq mtr and total laboratory size of 20,000 sq mtr.

For the complete package of application testing of polyolefin, several processing and testing technologies had to be accommodated and implemented:

  • Master-batching and compounding
  • Extrusion of blown and cast film, piping for water transport, power (HV), data cables (insulating jackets and semi conductive layers) and fibres
  • Moulding of bottles (blow moulding) and caps and closures (injection moulding)

As the flagship for Borouge R&D Innovation Centre the expectation was a pristine, state-of-the- art facility to allocate the most recent equipment in a neat environment.

M&I-Labtech scope of work was the design and engineering of all laboratories area comprising the following initiatives:

  • Spacing of labs
  • Sustainability of labs
