Lamprell Energy, a leading provider of fabrication, engineering and contracting services to the energy industry, has leased more land in Hamriyah Free Zone, aiming for further expansion in the region.
Sheikh Khaled bin Abdullah Sultan Al Qasimi, chairman of Hamriyah Free Zone Authority (HFZA) and James Moffat, chief executive officer of Lamprell, signed a deal in this regard recently, said a statement.
“Lamprell has acquired an additional land area of 114,280 sq m in Phase Two of the Hamriyah Free Zone as part of its development plans,” Shaikh Khaled, who is also the chairman for the Department of Seaports and Customs and Sharjah Airport International Free Zone (SAIF Zone), said, after inking the pact.
“We remain committed to giving our valued customers the best possible infrastructure to help support their growth aspirations,” he said.
“The additional land has been leased primarily in order to construct new fully automated fabrication areas including pipe fabrication shops and blasting and painting sheds. This initiative, which forms part of Lamprell’s 'Project Evolution' initiative, aims to increase efficiency and productivity," said a Lamprell spokesperson in a statement.
"This increased focus on automation and yard optimisation is aimed at reducing pipe fabrication man-hours, improving safety, eliminating unnecessary material wastage and improving the quality of the group’s products and services,” he said.
“With this additional land, Lamprell now leases over 500,000 sq m of land including 1,430 m of quayside in Hamriyah Free Zone," he added.
