Alexandria Chemicals Terminal (ALX-CT)

Project Description

In 2007, ALX-CT, a newly founded company specialized in the fields of importing/exporting and handling of industrial chemicals, awarded ECG the engineering services contract entailing the design, detailed engineering, construction supervision and management, and commissioning of the Alexandria Chemicals Terminal (ALX-CT) project. The project provided for bulk chemical receiving, storage, and packaging of chemicals at the Dekheila Port, Alexandria. ALX-CT is currently the first-of-its-kind terminal in North Africa and is the third terminal of its type in the Middle East.

Key project components comprised 13 chemical storage tanks of capacities ranging from 850-2,100 m3. At the harbor quay, 550 m away from the terminal, a chemical receiving station was set up to secure conveyance of industrial chemicals to the chemicals storage tanks via 3 extended piggable pipelines. Other terminal elements included a state-of-the-art truck loading station for bulk chemical land shipments; nitrogen generators for tank blanketing of all chemical storage tanks; a cutting-edge control unit adopting a programmable logic controller system; an administration building housing a control room and laboratory; along with all other service utilities such as fire alarm, fire fighting, compressed air, and so forth. In planning for future extensions, developed design considerations effectively accommodated a double-fold increase in the current terminal capacity.
