Prefeasibility study for a greenfield hot and cold rolling mill for Mubadala

prefeasibility study Mubadala

Background

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.
