Aluminium producer Dubal has floated a tender for the third phase of a plant-wide upgrade of its air-conditoning units.

The work will include all associated ducting, design, installation, cladding and integration of new units with existing ones.

Dubal said that it is seeking bids from companies "with a proven track record of supply and installation of A/C units and associated works in live industrial environments in GCC countries".

Dubal's plant at Jebel Ali is one of the largest single-site aluminiumn smelters in the world, capable of producing over one million tonnes of finished aluminium products a year.

The site contains a primary aluminium smelter, a 2,350MW power station, a large carbon plant, a 30m gallon per day desalination plant and casting operations capable of producing 1.2m tonnes a year.

Firms interested in bidding for the work need to request tender documents between Sunday and Thursday next week from Dubal's Contracts Office Reception. although they have to submit pre-qualification documents including a copy of their trade licence, references detailing similar work and a statement outlining the resources they have available to complete the work by next Tuesday, 27 Augusst.

Completed tender documents need to be returned by midday on Tuesday, 17 September.

In June this year, Dubal announced that it was to merge with Emirates Aluminium of Abu Dhabi to create a $15bn company which will be the fifth-biggest producer of aluminium worldwide.
