Borouge is a leading provider of innovative, value creating plastics solutions for polyethylene and polypropylene In 2010, Borouge tripled its annual production capacity in Abu Dhabi to 2 million tons, and an additional 2.5 million tons per year will be introduced by mid-2014 to create the world’s largest integrated polyolefin plant with the Borouge 3 extension.
Borouge has invested approximately US$ 30 million in a manufacturing plant in Shanghai with an annual capacity of 50,000 tons and the potential for expansion to 80,000 tons per year. Resins are compounded here specifically for customers in the growing automotive and appliance markets. A second plant is now planned for Guangzhou and is expected to be supplying 105,000 tons per year of compounded resins by 2012.
With a diverse workforce and the requirement to make Borouge a truly World-class Manufacturing organization, Borouge needed a Permit to Work system which would build upon their existing Safety Culture but at the same time offer improvements in Isolation Management, Conflict Management and improved productivity.
Borouge selected eVision for the flexibility offered by Permit Vision to integrate with existing systems within the organization, plus the ability to add new facilities as they become available. The Reporting Tools available will also be of benefit to the Borouge Management Team when the product is operational on all the sites.
