Source: Shaw Group

The Shaw Group Inc. (NYSE:SHAW) has started construction activities on its state-of-the-art pipe prefabrication facility in the United Arab Emirates. Located in the Industrial City of Abu Dhabi, Shaw Emirates Pipe Manufacturing LLC will construct and operate a 300,000-square-foot facility with the capability to support significant regional capital investments in the petroleum, power and process industries. 

As a worldwide leader in prefabricated piping systems, Shaw and its legacy of experience will benefit both new and existing customers in the Middle East. Pipe prefabrication is the process of welding and fitting pipe and other components into custom systems by following design and scheduling requirements in a factory-controlled environment. Shaw’s model for pipe prefabrication has become the industry standard, one that results in greater quality, efficiency and, ultimately, significant cost savings for customers. 

When completed in 2011, Shaw’s newest facility will add to its existing pipe prefabrication capabilities in the Middle East. Since 1994, Shaw-Nass Middle East, W.L.L. in the Kingdom of Bahrain has supplied piping systems for some of the world’s largest project owners and contractors in the region. 

“Significant large capital projects are under way in the Middle East that will impact the region's infrastructure in multiple industries—nuclear power, water, refinery, petrochemical and chemical,” said J.M. Bernhard Jr., Shaw's chairman, president and chief executive officer. “As these projects proceed in the next several years, Shaw Emirates Pipe Manufacturing will have the capability to fully support these initiatives with world-class piping systems prefabricated to the highest quality.”

Shaw provides piping, structural steel and duct panel prefabrication, module prefabrication and assembly, as well as pipe products and the world’s leading bending technology, for the power and process industries, including nuclear, gas- and coal-fired power plants, oil extraction, pipeline, refining, petrochemical and chemical. Through nine facilities worldwide that are equipped with the latest manufacturing technology, Shaw creates total prefabrication solutions for its customers.
