RTD completes two new projects for petrochemical giant SABIC Industries

Saudi based company SABIC Industries is ranked amongst the world’s largest petrochemical manufacturers. They were looking for a company with extensive experience in this industry and region to upgrade communications for two of their operations. RTD fulfilled this brief with our comprehensive knowledge of system design, our familiarity of working in this region and our track record of providing efficient service and support, including our on-site training.


Sadaf Saudi Petrochemical Company

Yanbu National Petrochemical Company (Yansab) manufactures a wide range of petrochemical products. RTD supplied and installed the latest Motorola Dimetra TETRA communication system, comprising the high performance MTS4 TETRA base station, together with 345 ATEX radios.
Sadaf is a joint venture between SABIC Industries and Shell Chemicals Arabia LLC, based in Al-Jubail, Saudi Arabia. Again, the Motorola Dimetra TETRA system was selected, utilizing the MTS4 TETRA base station and 306 ATEX certified radios from Motorola.

For both of the above projects, provision of a highly efficient communication system was vitally important to SABIC in order to protect the safety of workers in these sometimes hazardous working environments. The Motorola ATEX radios were selected for their unrivalled voice and data communications, providing the safe, secure and reliable communication network they need to keep their workers safe. The MTS4 TETRA base station has improved power efficiency resulting in lower operating costs, with a reduced need for antennas.

We are delighted we were able to assist SABIC in providing the latest communications technology at a low cost, thus improving their operations and ensuring they are working to the latest ATEX and IECEx safety standards, in order to fulfil their commitment to worker safety and efficiency.
