Mubadala Development Company (Mubadala) is a business development and investment company wholly owned by the Government of Abu Dhabi. Mubadala is a catalyst for the economic diversification of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. In 2008 we contributed technical know-how to a prefeasibility study commissioned by Mubadala.

How we were involved

As part of this study, which was for a Greenfield hot and cold rolling plant, our Process Improvement team specified the equipment required to make a pre-determined range of aluminium flat rolled products. They also designed a factory floor layout.

To determine the project’s feasibility, we used our extensive experience of working in rolling plants to create a preliminary financial model. In addition to equipment utilisation and ramp-up schedules, this model took into account equipment costs, buildings and infrastructure costs, as well as operational costs such as utility loadings and staffing.

Services Involved

This case study appears as an article in the 2009 edition of ‘innform’; the newsletter of Innoval Technology.

The team at Innoval have years of experience working in world-class rolling operations throughout the world. Their input was vital to this study to ensure we had a realistic financial model to base our decisions on.
