Ruwais, Abu Dhabi

Our colleagues in Abu Dhabi have successfully erected a 107 meters tall, 54 lifts scaffolding at the big C3 stripper column of Ruwais Refinery West Units (RRW UR). A team of 70 scaffolders utilised 23,310 m3 / 585 tons of scaffolding material for this job. Very hot weather, high humidity and the occasional strong wind were among the daily challenges. Our project team was recognised by our client ‘GS Engineering’ who awarded KAEFER for the valuable contributions in achieving 10 million man-hours without LTI at the RRW UR Project. Congratulations to everyone involved - keep up the very good and safe working attitude! Special thanks to our Scaffolding Design team at KAEFER Saudi Arabia for providing the design.
