Saudi’s ACMC seeks contractors to build metals reclamation

Saudi-based Advanced Circular Materials Company (ACMC), a joint venture between Netherlands-headquartered Shell & AMG Recycling (SARBV) and local United Company for Industry (UCI), has invited global EPC/EPCM contractors to prequalify for a metals reclamation project in the Kingdom.

SARBV, the lead partner of ACMC, is heading the tendering process for the supercentre, which aligns with the Aramco Namaat Industrial Investments Programme initiative aimed at building national industrial champions.

ACMC is developing a spent catalyst and gasification ash recycling supercentre at the Jubail Industrial Complex (Plaschem Park) to transform oil refinery waste into a domestic resource. The facility will produce ferrovanadium for steel alloying and high-purity vanadium oxide for large-scale energy storage technologies, according to SARBV’s website.

SARBV seeks experienced contractors with a proven track record in large-scale industrial projects, particularly in metals and recycling technologies, and established setups in the Kingdom to execute the first phase of the project.

Phase 1 will process gasification ash from the Jazan Refining Complex to produce battery-grade vanadium oxide and vanadium electrolyte for vanadium redox flow batteries. At full capacity, the plant will process 7,000 metric tonnes of vanadium concentrate per annum. The project is in the FEL 3 (FEED) conclusion phase, with preparations underway to start construction, and commissioning expected by the end of 2026.

Interested parties are requested to confirm their interest in the pre-qualification exercise by 21 July 2024 via email to PT-Enquiry-KSA-Supercenter-Project (at) The email should include the company profile, specific and full legal/contracting name of the participating entity, office locations and addresses, details of any part owners if the entity is not wholly owned by the main parent company, and key contacts for the exercise.

Phase 2 will expand the facility to process spent catalysts from heavy oil upgrading facilities to produce ferrovanadium for the steel industry and additional battery-grade vanadium oxide. Phase 3 involves installing a manufacturing facility for Residue Upgrading catalysts.

In July 2022, SARBV and UCI announced an agreement with Aramco to construct and operate a world-class metals supercentre complex in Saudi Arabia.
