This integrated approach is expected to reduce overall project costs for customers, including ADNOC Group.

Al Masabi said: “The partnership with Roll Group is an important step in the growth of our integrated logistics operations, particularly for heavy haulage. Heavy lift services are an integral part of any large EPC contract, and this combined capability allows us to deliver a comprehensive and cutting-edge solution, which also turns out be more economical for the project”.

There are several major oil and gas projects at the bidding stage in the UAE, which require a combined solution of heavy-lift land transport, marine transport, marine services and engineering. The collaboration between ADNOC L&S and Roll Group enables the companies to provide fully integrated solutions within the UAE and across the region.

Nimalan Logeswaran, regional sales director for Roll Group in the MENA region, added: “We have formed this partnership to consolidate our expertise in response to the changing market conditions and our clients’ requirements. By providing a single integrated source covering end-to-end logistics solutions, ADNOC L&S and Roll Group can now offer our clients an optimized and economical approach for their logistical needs on oil and gas projects”.
