Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s (ADNOC) shipping and maritime logistics arm ADNOC Logistics & Services (ADNOC L&S) has partnered with the Netherlands-based Roll Group to provide logistical solutions for both onshore and offshore projects.
As part of the agreement, ADNOC L&S and Roll Group will provide end-to-end heavy lifting and transport solutions. Further, the companies will offer installation for engineering procurement and construction contracts. This integrated approach is expected to reduce overall project costs for customers, including ADNOC Group.
“The agreement also improves the development of ADNOC L&S’ logistics base in Mussafah and Riash as Roll Group will establish a permanent base at ADNOC L&S’ Mussafah Offshore Supply Base and relocate its Self-Propelled Modular Trailers (SPMTs) to ADNOC L&S’ Riash facility,” according to the statement.
“The partnership with Roll Group is an important step in the growth of our integrated logistics operations, particularly for heavy haulage. Heavy Lift services are an integral part of any large EPC contract, and this combined capability allows us to deliver a comprehensive and cutting-edge solution, which also turns out to be more economical for the project. The UAE is currently making large investments in new downstream and industrial facilities and refurbishing existing plants. As part of our broad strategy across shipping, integrated logistics, and marine services, we are creating an integrated ecosystem that can meet the transport and logistical needs of such large and critical oil and gas projects.”
“By providing a single integrated source covering end-to-end logistics solutions, ADNOC L&S and Roll Group can now offer our clients an optimized and economical approach for their logistical needs on oil and gas projects. Our focus is to help our clients deliver the most innovative and cost-effective solutions to their clients,” commented Mr. Nimalan Logeswaran, regional sales director for Roll Group MEA.
ADNOC L&S has logistics bases at Ruwais, Fujairah, and Mussafah, with Mussafah serving as the Gulf region’s largest integrated logistics base. The company also operates the only marine passenger terminal within ADNOC Group, providing a wide range of diversified services to the offshore industry with limited competition in the region.
