AKizad 34 Clusters 35 Aluminium/ Aluminium manufacturing processes tend to be energy intensive with the result that locations able to offer low power costs are well placed to compete on a global level. COMPETITIVE Consumption of aluminium on a global level has been increasing consistently, reaching 23.5 million tonnes in 2009. The Middle East market has been increasing significantly in response to demand from the manufacturing, aerospace, transport and construction sectors. The Kizad Aluminium Cluster is anchored by Emal’s smelter, which will be the largest single site smelter in the world. Downstream Kizad is targeting rolling mills, extrusions, castings, forgings and other downstream manufacturers in areas such as construction, transportation, packaging and engineered metal products. Additionally, Kizad is consulting potential tenants about their requirements for service suppliers such as dross recyclers that require easy access to a smelter. The Hot Metal Road will cut re-melting costs for midstream producers, while the proximity of downstream producers and service suppliers will generate business and operational efficiencies which, supported by the low utility costs available at Kizad, will offer all aluminium companies the opportunity to be highly competitive in the market place.
SKizad 36 Clusters 37 Steel/ Strong local demand and Abu Dhabi’s low utility costs combine to create highly attractive opportunities for primary steel manufacturing companies. EFFICIENT Steel manufacturers in the Middle East need to be based close to port facilities to enable the import of raw materials. With the Middle East currently importing much of its steel, strong local demand and Abu Dhabi’s low utility costs combine to create a highly attractive opportunity for a primary steel manufacturing company to establish at Kizad. Adjacent to the most advanced port in the region with potential for a conveyor to bring raw materials from port to plant, Kizad is well positioned to host a steel industry cluster based around a major steel producer. Kizad’s vertically integrated Steel Cluster is expected to centre on an anchor tenant operating upstream plants such as DRI production and Electric Arc Furnace melt shops. These are expected to produce slab, bloom, billets and strip steel. The cluster will also include rolling mills, producing rebar, beams, sheet steel, and downstream manufacturers and service providers, all of which will benefit from close proximity to each other. Downstream manufacturers in the engineered metal products sector will enjoy the same advantage.
EMKizad 38 Clusters 39 ENGINEERED METAL PRODUCTS/ KIZAD’S VERTICALLY INTEGRATED ENGINEERED METALS CLUSTER HAS BEEN MASTER PLANNED TO OFFER METAL MANUFACTURING AND FABRICATION INDUSTRIES SIGNIFICANT COMMERCIAL ADVANTAGES. FLEXIBLE Kizad’s vertically integrated Engineered Metals Cluster has been master planned to offer metal manufacturing and fabrication industries significant commercial advantages, unprecedented levels of business efficiency, profitability and sustainability. Kizad’s Engineered Metals Cluster brings together basic producers in the Aluminium, Steel and Petrochemicals/Chemicals Clusters together with downstream metals manufacturers, in a single integrated environment. It will also play host to service providers, such as laboratories and testing facilities, and industrial gas suppliers, that all benefit from working closely with one another. For an industry with potentially high power requirements, Abu Dhabi’s low utility costs create a significant business advantage, helping to reduce overheads and boost profits for resident businesses. While not a true vertically integrated cluster, the close proximity of downstream producers and service suppliers will generate business efficiencies which, supported by the low utility costs available at Kizad, will offer engineered metals companies the opportunity to be highly competitive in the market place.
PcKizad 40 Clusters 41 petrochemicals and chemicals/ The Petrochemical/Chemical Cluster will be in close proximity to large scale petrochemical producers supporting a range of downstream processors and chemical manufacturers. CONNECTED With petrochemical and chemical manufacturing processes tending to be energy intensive and requiring raw materials from the oil and gas industries, locations able to offer feedstocks and low utility costs are well positioned to compete on a global level. The petrochemicals industry in the Middle East is projected to continue growing slightly ahead of world demand, at around 4% per annum. It is a market which responds to the economic health of the region and profitability springs from efficient operation. Kizad is ideally placed to capitalise on both drivers. The Kizad Petrochemical/Chemical Cluster will be in close proximity to large scale petrochemical producers supporting a range of downstream processors and chemical manufacturers. The convenient location of Khalifa Port offers the efficient onward shipment of petrochemical and chemical bulk solid, liquid and gas cargoes.
PhKizad 42 Clusters 43 PHARMACEUTICALS AND HEALTHCARE EQUIPMENT/ Abu Dhabi’s focus on health and its high population growth are twin drivers of its interest in the pharmaceutical and healthcare equipment industries. EXPANDING Abu Dhabi’s focus on health which drives its interest in the pharmaceutical and healthcare equipment industries, are laid out in Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.The Emirates’ high population growth is another driver which should encourage pharmaceutical and healthcare equipment companies to consider setting up in Kizad. Pharmaceutical sales in the UAE exceeded US $1 billion in 2009, while the GCC market was valued at over US$8 billion. Forecasts suggest that this will grow between 4 and 5% annually. Pharmaceuticals is a key industry for the GCC, which has specific health issues and rising demand for new and better treatments. The ability to develop and manufacture these locally, will offer companies a significant advantage compared to the cost of importing, and is an industry sector keenly supported by the Abu Dhabi Government. Pharmaceutical manufacturers will find in Kizad an environment focused on meeting the demands of a modern industry.
FKizad 44 Clusters 45 food/ the ability to develop and manufacture food products locally will offer companies a significant advantage compared to the cost of importing them. APPETISING Seen as a key enabling industry in the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, the market for food products is also driven by the Emirate’s high population growth. The UAE food market exceeded US $4 billion in 2009, with forecasts suggesting that it will grow between 4 and 5% annually driven partially by rising domestic incomes. Food is a key industry for the GCC, which imports a large proportion of both staple and processed goods. The ability to develop and manufacture these locally will offer companies a significant advantage compared to the cost of importing, and is an industry sector keenly supported by the Abu Dhabi Government. Food manufacturers will find in Kizad an environment focused on meeting the demands of a modern industry with attractive options for upstream, midstream and downstream producers. Low cost utilities, excellent transportation and road access to local and regional markets, present a compelling case for food producers to invest in Kizad.
PKizad 46 Clusters 47 PAPER, PRINT and PACKAGING/ ENERGY INTENSIVE AND HIGH VOLUME WATER CONSUMING COMPANIES IN THE PAPER PRODUCTION INDUSTRY WILL ESPECIALLY BENEFIT FROM KIZAD’S LOW COST UTILITIES. AVAILABILITY Paper manufacturing processes are also energy intensive and consume a great deal of water. Locations like Kizad with available low cost utilities are ideal to help producers compete on a global level. The heavyweight and high distribution costs of finished product creates a significant opportunity for a locally-based primary manufacturer. Excellent access to the increasingly important markets of India and China further enhance the prospects for the sector. The Kizad Paper Cluster is expected to be anchored by a large capacity paper and paperboard mill supplying roll and cut sheet product. The close proximity of this facility to other businesses within Kizad will be ideal for the printing, publishing and packaging industries, all of which will be in demand.
TLKizad 48 Clusters 49 TRADE and logistics / the trade and logistics operations necessary to support industries locating to Kizad are moving ahead and a Warehouse and Logistics Park is already under development. EMERGING As the opening of Khalifa Port and Kizad moves closer by the day, planning for the trade and logistics operations necessary to support industries in the Zone is moving ahead. A Warehouse and Logistics Park is being developed in Kizad’s Area A for logistics units. It comprises pre-built warehouses and leased land plots for occupiers and third party logistics providers to build their own facilities. The idea behind this project is to provide warehouses that meet the requirements of storage, cargo and other logistical operators within Kizad. Investors will be able to lease land plots ranging in size from 15,000 sq m to 500,000 sq m within the 2.1 sq km Logistics Cluster in Area A. The total land area allocated for pre-built warehouses is 400,000 sq m. Development of the warehouses is planned in two phases. The first phase will comprise 100,000 sq m of prebuilt warehouses with a mixture of modular units from 1,000 sq m. Each unit will provide for 10% of office content. The warehouses, to be developed will have a design efficiency of 90% and will be fitted with air-conditioned units and loading docks. An investor planning to build his own warehouse and logistics facility will be granted a long-term Land Agreement; whereas an investor interested in prebuilt facilities, both standard and bespoke, will be entitled to enter a long-term Lease Agreement.
MUKizad 50 Clusters 51 MIXED USE AND OTHER INDUSTRIES/ Smaller clusters or industries that do not fit the standard vertically integrated cluster definition can still take advantage of Kizad’s benefits. ACCOMMODATING Of course not all industries that seek to take advantage of Kizad’s key benefits; access to markets, low cost utilities and ease of doing business will fit into the clusters described previously. For this reason Kizad has a Mixed Use Cluster which can house businesses from a variety of industries and still offer unprecedented value. Smaller clusters or industries which Kizad targets under the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, but do not fit the standard vertically integrated cluster definition, may also be placed in the Mixed Use Cluster or close to other customers or suppliers. The industries which have been identified in this respect so far are as follows: — Glass — Oilfield Equipment and Supplies — Non Ferrous Metals — High Technology and Clean Technology — Construction Materials and Equipment
